Holidays in Hell, by P.J. O'Rourke

I've read a number of P.J.'s books now, and generally enjoyed them. He has an acerbic wit, and he's a good observer; the combination makes him interesting, and I often learn something. This, alas, is one of his earlier books, back before he'd settled fully into his groove; there's too much sex, drugs, and inanities, and too little point for it to really worth reading, especially given how dated most of the material is. Oh, well.
