Overview

At the Still Point: A Memoir by Carol Buckley

Carol Buckley has written an extraordinarily honest and moving account of her turbulent life as the youngest member of the famous Buckley family.

The last of ten children, her parents well into middle age and her siblings mostly grown by the time she was born, Carol Buckley describes the opulent neglect of her early childhood--a lost child left to the care of servants. She tells poignant anecdotes about her brothers and sisters in their youth, including her most well-known sibling, National Review editor William F. Buckley, Jr. This is no Mommie Dearest, but the facts of Buckley's upbringing do explain the crises that she would experience later on.

In Buckley's words, this is a book of resolution and self-discovery--instead of reinventing herself, she became the person she was meant to be.
