Growing Up Buckley: Mum and Pup and Me

Growing Up Buckley: Mum and Pup and Me

“To the extent that the story of my present life has a dimension beyond the purely personal, I suppose it’s an account of becoming an orphan. My mother and father died within 11 months of each other in 2007 and 2008. One realization does dawn upon the death of the second parent, namely that you’ve now moved into the green room to the River Styx. You’re next. Another thing about parental mortality: No matter how much you’ve prepared for the moment, when it comes, it comes at you hot, hard and unrehearsed.”
-Christopher Buckley, March 2009
