P.J. O'Rourke attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he graduated in 1969, and received an M.A. from the Johns Hopkins University where he was a Woodrow Wilson fellow. After college, he discovered that he had no job prospects, so he decided to become a writer. He was editor-in-chief of the National Lampoon from 1978 to 1981, where he was responsible for the infamous "Yearbook" parody. He was the international affairs correspondent for Rolling Stone magazine from 1986 to 2001. He was the author of sixteen books, including Parliament of Whores, Give War a Chance, All the Trouble in the World, and Eat the Rich, several of which were NYT bestsellers. He had three children with his second wife, Tina.
