With dictionary in hand, we follow Bill Buckley on a tour of his life which is part "Being There" (with Peter Sellers), part Thurston Howell III on steroids, and part Thomas Aquinas. The man led an extraordinary life and seemed to be, by accident or destiny, present at some of the most significant historical events of the Twentieth Century. He attends a boarding school in England and just happens to see Chamberlain return from his meeting with Hitler; then just happens to be stationed near Warm Springs when FDR dies; then is an honor guard in the procession to the train station. And this is not to mention his year-after-graduation book, God and Man at Yale, which just happens to found the modern conservative movement. An astounding life and a tour de force of language. Enjoy! ( )
