Author Bio - Christopher Buckley

Our author this week, Christopher Buckley, has written a number of novels.  His most famous, however, was probably Thank You For Smoking, which was made into a movie in 2006 (and the book is fabulous.  You should go read it.)

Buckley graduated from Yale in the early '70s and has a number of prodigious things on his resume, like being the editor for Esquire magazine and the speech writing from (at the time) Vice President George H.W. Bush.

In 2008, he endorsed Obama, much to the surprise of his readers of the conservative magazine, National Review.  The title of the article was, "Sorry, Dad, I'm voting for Obama."  The title alone shows you the incredible tongue in cheek style that Buckley adopts for his books.

He doesn't seem to have a website, but has written more than a few articles for magazines like the National Review and The Daily Beast.
