Author Bio
Christopher Buckley
Son of conservative writer and pundit William F. Buckley, "the only child of parents who were very busy at becoming famous," Christopher Buckley grew up in Connecticut and was educated at various Catholic schools, including one run by Benedictine monks. Before heading for Yale, he worked as a deckhand on a tramp steamer and sailed around the world. At Yale, he edited the Yale Daily News and, at the age of 24, became managing editor of Esquire. In 1980 he was drafted by President George Bush as a speechwriter; his satirical first novel, THE WHITE HOUSE MESS, based on his Washington experience, was published in 1988. In 2008, Buckley wrote a regular column for the National Review, which was published on the back page of the magazine. However, he caused a serious stir in conservative circles when he wrote an article that appeared on a website during the heat of the presidential campaign, entitled "Sorry, Dad, I'm Voting for Obama." When Buckley offered to resign from the magazine his father had founded, his resignation was quickly accepted. When asked by Deborah Solomon of the New York Times if he had expected the magazine to accept his offer, Buckley answered, "Well, I--no. No, I didn't."

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"There's an effortless quality to Buckley's prose that's both enviable and annoying: he sets a crisp pace and tosses off great one-liners, but you can't help believing that he's capable of something a little deeper and more enduring....It's often said that good satire is funny because it's true. Buckley knows how to walk this line...." - Rob Walker 10/20/2002

Kirkus Reviews
"Unspeakably and endlessly funny...." 08/01/2002
