"As ever, sheer delight from humor and prose, whatever the
political faith."John Kenneth Galbraith

"What Buckley has is a sort of sparkle and grace, equally in his speaking,
writing, and television appearances.free minds are desperately rare and
precious, and in him I detect one."Malcolm Muggeridge

In this autobiography, woven from personal pieces composed over the course
of a celebrated writing life of more than fifty years, you'll meet William Buckley
the boy, growing up in a family of ten children; Buckley the daring young political
enfant terrible, whose debut book, God and Man at Yale, was a
shocking New York Times best-seller; Buckley the editor of National Review,
widely hailed as the founder of the modern conservative movement; Buckley the husband
and father; Buckley the spy and novelist of spies; and Buckley the bon vivant.
You'll also meet Buckley's friends: Ronald Reagan, Henry Kissinger, Clare Boothe Luce,
Tom Wolfe, John Kenneth Galbraith, David Niven, and many others.

Along the way, the listener will be treated to Buckley's romance with wine, his love of the
right word, his intoxication with music, and his joy in skiing and travel.

Buckley, Jr., a syndicated columnist, author, editor, television host, and adventurer, was the founder of National Review and the host of the Emmy Award-winning Firing Line, the longest-running program in television history with the same host.
