  • BOOK REVIEW: 'Living on Fire'

    It was almost as though Evelyn Waugh had crafted this story: a follow-up to "Brideshead Revisited," with its tale of a charming if emotionally uncertain English aristocrat fallen into the care and keeping of God.

They were confident of their ideas and amused. One of their goals is to keep the name of William F. Buckley Jr. alive and a thorn in the side of Yale's smug liberal establishment.
