about

It happens every day, often without warning: seemingly mature adults-completely capable ones who do things like work in offices, pay their bills on time, and help their children with their homework-engage in a discussion about politics. At least, it begins as a discussion. More often than anyone cares to admit, it descends into a sparring match of personal attacks and insults. Maybe it starts on social media, but too often it can land at your dinner table, your local bar, or your place of work: those seemingly mature adults descend into walking temper tantrums of madness.These Are My Friends on Politicshilariously lampoons this transformation, chronicling how an election year turns the reasonable adults we aspire to be into nothing better than vicious, bickering children.
By day, Billy O'Keefe writes mostly unamusing web code. By moonlight, he is a writer and illustrator of delightful words and pictures. He enjoys both halves of his day. You can find samples of everything at his website, billyok.com. Billy lives in Printers Row, Chicago, andThese Are My Friends on Politicsis his first book.

Editorial Reviews

"Billy O'Keefe's hilarious book shows us that politics makes all our friends crazy. Especially our friends who don't vote the way we want them to. Now I'm mad thinking about those friends." -Jen Mann, New York Times best-selling author of People I Want to Punch in the Throat "I'm right and you're WRONG AND I AM THE RIGHTEST I'VE EVER BEEN. Billy knows that feeling and got me calmed down. FOR NOW." -G. Derek Adams, author of Asteroid Made of Dragons "O'Keefe's romp chronicles the worst of us in the best possible light. Every page is a conversation in the corner of a D.C. cocktail party-only honest." -Gary Yordon, host of CBS TV's The Usual Suspects
