This book totally cracked me up. It's in the tradition of some of favorite authors: Tom Robbins, Kurt Vonnegut and Douglas Adams. When a young assistant to the President meets the aliens who come to Earth, his entire life changes. The second major change is when he meets the girl of his dreams when he's out picking up the President's daily sandwich. The book tells the story of the alien arrival to the US, while simultaneously telling the story of some of the inhabitants of Rigel-Rigel (did he watch Farscape?).
This is one of those 'laugh out loud' books... in fact, I read a lot of it while riding on the exercise bike at the office. More than once did someone look while I laughed while riding!
