Right Time, Right Place: Coming of Age with William F. Buckley Jr. and the Conservative Movement

Book Overview
Richard Brookhiser wrote his first cover story for the renowned conservative magazine National Review in 1969, when he was fourteen, and became the magazine's youngest senior editor at age twenty-three. William F. Buckley Jr. was Brookhiser's mentor, hero, and admirer--but their relationship was, at times, a troubled one. Brookhiser remained a friend and colleague of Buckley throughout his time at the Review , however, and in Right Time, Right Place , Brookhiser tells the story of that tumultuous relationship with affection and clarity, while also providing a sparkling eyewitness account of the conservative intellectual and political ferment that Buckley nurtured and led.
