“In Has Anyone Seen My Toes?, Buckley has captured the zeitgeist of the pandemic in his own hysterical way. In so doing, he gives readers the chance to cleanse themselves of COVID cobwebs and another excuse to laugh….Buckley's sure hand keeps the reader entertained along the way….many turns of a phrase, clever and wonderfully sarcastic wording and plenty out-and-out funny lines.”
--Newsweek

"Has Anyone Seen My Toes? is Buckley at his madcap best, deserving of a place on your bookshelf right next to P. G. Wodehouse. Buckley, of course, would laugh at that notion, but self-effacement is very much part of his charm."

--Air Mail

Anderson Cooper begins his and Katherine Howe’s splendid book with a vignette about his father taking him, age 6, to see the statue of his great-great-great-grandfather “Commodore” Cornelius Vanderbilt outside New York’s Grand Central Terminal.

Mr. Nunes gets his medal

The Presidential Medal of Freedom has personal resonance for me. As a White House speechwriter in the early 1980s, I sneaked into the East Room and watched President Ronald Reagan hang the beribboned medal around the neck of James Cagney. The actor was in a wheelchair and seemed only dimly aware of what was going on. The president spoke tenderly about how, years earlier, Cagney had gone out of his way to be kind to “a new kid on the Warner’s lot.” It was a touching moment.
