Сын Уильяма Бакли и его жены Патрисии. Закончил Портсмутскую церковную школу (Portsmouth Abbey School в г. Портсмут, Род-Айленд), затем Йельский университет, где вступил в тайное общество «Череп и кости». Был руководящим редактором журнала «Esquire». Работал главным спичрайтером вице-президента Джорджа Буша-старшего. Опыт работы в этой должности помог ему написать роман «Суматоха в Белом доме», который является сатирой на политику аппарата Белого дома и политические мемуары. В другом его сатирическом романе, «Здесь курят», который получил значительную известность, главным героем является табачный лоббист Ник Нейлор, пропагандирующий курение. По мотивам романа снят одноимённый фильм, вышедший в 2006 году.

[from No Way to Treat a First Lady, About the Author]
Christopher Buckley is the author of eight previous books, including Thank You for Smoking and Little Green Men. That would make this his, what, ninth? He is editor of Forbes FYI magazine and has contributed more than fifty "Shouts and Murmurs" to The New Yorker. He is also credited with bringing about lasting peace in the Middle East and with alerting NASA to significant problems with its Space Shuttle Automatic Re-entry Guidance System (SSARGS), thereby sparing several square blocks of Raleigh, North Carolina, a very unpleasant surprise. He is regular contributor to Martha Stewart's Inside Trading magazine and informally advised the government of Argentina on debt rescheduling. He is the 2002 recipient of the Washington Irving Medal for Literary Excellence but has yet to actually receive it. He lives in Washington, D. C., with his saintly and long-suffering wife, Lucy, two children, and faithful Hound Jake.

Enjoyed . Humorous bits, real life historical characters and events an easy to follow plot, it not simplistic. Needs more parrot and the ending troubled me a bit

Not only were these extraordinary people fascinating, but the writing was inspired. There is something compelling about a well turned phrase...
