About the Author

William F. Buckley Jr., who founded National Review magazine in 1955, is the author of more than forty books. For more than thirty years he hosted the television show Firing Line, and his newspaper column, "On the Right," is syndicated to more than three hundred newspapers.

Malcolm Hillgartner is an actor, author, playwright, and professional narrator. Under the name Jahnna N. Malcolm, he and his wife, Jahnna Beecham, have written over one hundred books for young readers; their musicals have played in theaters across America. His audiobook credits include works by Dean Koontz, Nelson Algren, and William F. Buckley Jr.


A genial and charming book.

-- "Reader's Digest"

"Malcolm Hillgartner performs a good balancing act, shifting from the essays to the letters with subtle changes that clearly indicate whose letter is being read. His most impressive feat is creating a clear yet subdued voice within the reading to indicate when footnotes or asides for clarification are being made."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

A deeply subtle account, full of insights not only into Ronald Reagan but also into William Buckley, his longtime friend, supporter, and (occasional) critic.

-- "Booklist"

"[An] easy-reading, illuminating volume [that] adds to the growing literature celebrating Reagan's style and substantive achievements, especially in ending the Cold War."

-- "Gil Troy, professor of history, McGill University"
