Buckley (Heart) Elvis?
No, it's not a liberal v. conservative thing. Writing an Elvis
book just does not fit the William F. Buckley image. Ontime spy novelist. Erudite PBS show host. Shows up in places like House Beautiful, waxing witty about homes and home decor, with references to the Metropolitan Opera and such. I too love the Big E, but this
is baffling and hilarious. He apparently discusses his E fixation in the upcoming (and usually outstanding) Southern Music Issue of the Oxford American
. Thoughts? Is the new American literary dream to retire and write an Elvis book, as opposed to the Great American Novel?
