Christopher Buckley tells the story of the year in which he lost both of his parents. He was the only child of William F. Buckley Jr. and Patricia Taylor Buckley. Even with the grim details of his parents’ failing health Mr. Buckley is able to maintain his sense of humor.
I listened to this book on CD read by the author. Although Christopher Buckley has his own voice and speaking style he is definitely his father’s son. I enjoyed the inside look into the lives of the rich and famous and politically connected Buckley family. The author lets you know that he loves his parents as he puts a human face on iconic people and events with a great sense of humor.
