Miles Gone By
A Literary Autobiography
Narrated by William F. Buckley, Jr. / 18 hours 35 minutes
In this autobiography, woven from personal pieces composed over the course of a celebrated writing life of more than fifty years, you'll meet William Buckley the boy, growing up in a family of ten children; Buckley the political enfant terrible, whose debut book, God and Man at Yale, was a New York Times bestseller; Buckley the editor of the National Review, hailed as the founder of the modern conservative movement; Buckley the family man; Buckley the spy and novelist of spies; and Buckley the bon vivant. You'll also meet Buckley's friends: Ronald Reagan, Henry Kissinger, Clare Boothe Luce, Tom Wolfe, David Niven, and many others. Along the way, listeners will be treated to Buckley's romance with wine, his love of the right word, his intoxication with music, and his joy in skiing and travel.
