The Greatest Story Ever Told

A brief biography of William F. Buckley, Jr., by David Brooks, Chicago Maroon, April 5, 1983, at Sean Gleeson (Internet Archive), including
Buckley spent most of his infancy working on his memoirs. By the time he had learned how to talk he had finished three volumes: The World Before Buckley, which traced the history of the world prior to his conception; The Seeds of Utopia, which outlined his effect on world events during the nine months of his gestation; and The Glorious Dawn, which described the profound ramifications of his birth on the social order.
