About This Episode

Episode #909 - Losing Mum and Pup by

This memoir by Christopher Buckley recounts some of the life and a great deal about the deaths of his parents, William F. Buckley, Jr. and Patricia Taylor Buckley, which occurred within 11 months of each other during 2007-2008. It is at times hilarious; moving; and cuttingly sad. But mostly it celebrates their lives and his life with both of them. In the process it gives us some really inside views of Bill Buckley and his famous wife, and adds to our understanding of the human dimensions of this "Godfather" of the right. Anyone who has parents still living, or has gone through the experience of bidding "Adieu" to one's parents, will find much to learn from and identify with in this book.
