Think of Christopher Buckley’s support for Barack Obama as preface to his new book about his parents, William F. Buckley Jr and his wife Pat. Christopher Buckley, the author of Thank You For Smoking, told the New York Post that some people might be unhappy with his new book.
“This book is going to land hard in some quarters . . . It’s a book about two very complex people. They were not your typical mom and dad. This is not Ozzie and Harriet. They were William F. and Pat Buckley. The phrase ‘larger than life’ doesn’t twice cover it.”
