What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Author and illustrator McCall teams up with late-night host Letterman for this brilliant parody of the lifestyle of the One Percent, the richest of the American rich....The text is witty, and McCall’s illustrations are beautifully executed...much to laugh at here.”— Booklist

“No wonder Dave [Letterman] teamed up with [Bruce] McCall for their new book, This Land Was Made for You and Me (But Mostly Me)...Their book treats readers to the McCallian charm that Letterman has adored since the 1970s, when he stumbled onto McCall's work...[McCall] depicts a wonderland of gracious living writ extravagantly large. His is a Gatsby-like world of urbane but unconscionable excess that feels fancifully authentic, that indeed might have existed in bygone times, or might today, or might tomorrow—that is, if expense, taste and even minimal respect for Mother Nature were no object.”
—Frazier Moore, The Associated Press

This book's illustrator, Bruce McCall, cracks wise about liberals in a Nov. 5 NY Times article about this book: ' “George Soros is a liberal, too,” [McCall] said. “You don’t have to be stupid and poor to be a liberal.” '
