8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Catholic book friend on April 18, 2012
Format: Hardcover
This is a collection of Chambers' side of his correspondence with William F. Buckley, with occasional (sometimes amusing) commentary by WFB. Many of the letters are masterpieces of writing, as he reflects on topics ranging from the killing of animals on his farm to the fate of the free world. The whole book is imbued with lived spirituality--i.e., everything is seen sub specie aeternitatis. Before I read anything else by or about Chambers, this book sufficed to convince me that he was a great writer and an indispensable interpreter of our society.
