Whose Rose Garden

Art Buchwald, Author Putnam Publishing Group $18.95 (352p) ISBN 978-0-399-13480-7
In the world according to Buchwald, facile actor Ronald Reagan has passed the torch to ``I am not a wimp'' President George Bush, whose right-hand man, proud ex-National Guardsman Dan Quayle, brings impressive golfing skills to his new post. This latest batch of columns from the prolific Washington humorist considers Gary Hart, who ``chose love over his country'' and was sent home by the voters, and the gun lobbyists, fearful that the shrapnel will hit the fan. Buchwald has no dearth of targets: public relations-pro Mikhail Gorbachev, airlines mogul ``Captain'' Frank Lorenzo and great humanitarians like Adnan Khashoggi and Donald Trump draw his fire; he also shreds Oliver North, Michael Dukakis, Jimmy Swaggart, the Exxon tanker oil spill, airline unsafety and the commercializaton of Christmas. If the civilizing influence of professional football doesn't save the American people, Buchwald's imaginary dialogues and quasi-populist rants may help to keep us sane. (Oct.)
