Why would Mal Warwick introduce William F. Buckley Jr’s son?

If that question strikes you as droll, you might find it entertaining to attend a reading by Christopher Buckley, who is indeed the son of you-know-who, next Wednesday in Berkeley. If you’re anywhere near Berkeley, that is.

Buckley, author of Thank You for Smoking, will be reading from his latest satirical novel, They Eat Puppies, Don’t They? (It’s about the U.S. and China – get it?) There will be Q&A to follow, which I’ll moderate. I’d love to see you there!

I recently reviewed They Eat Puppies here.

The event will take place at 7:30 pm next Wednesday, June 13, at the Hillside Club, 2286 Cedar Street in Berkeley.

  1. Mal, Wow. Sorry I missed it, but it’s a long way from Vancouver. I love Buckley’s work (read them all) and I loved this book as well. I proposed it for our men’s beer and book club, and we will be discussing it next thursday.
    Hope the evening was fun.

    • The event last night was a thrill. Chris Buckley was hilarious almost nonstop, and even I was funny in a couple of places. He comes across as a very caring guy. He endorsed Obama last time, you know? But he wouldn’t say what he’s doing this time.
