Book festival brings a ‘weird, wonderful energy’ to Mall
Washington has proven inspirational to many writers, of course, Mr. Mallon included. His last novel was titled “Watergate,” and he’s now working on a novel about the late years of Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Some fans meeting him and other writers over the next week might one day put their own perspective on the city into prose. There will be plenty of room for them — one famous fictionalizer of Washington is getting out of the business, it seems.
“Today, the best satire seems to be either on the Onion or the op-ed page of The New York Times, under the byline ‘Putin.’ I think, in so many words, that we live in a post-satirical time. Time, therefore, to move on,” Mr. Buckley revealed. “I’m retiring from satire. Don’t laugh, but my next book is about Western civilization. I asked you not to laugh. Why are you laughing? All right. This interview is concluded, thank you.”
