|HerbDB||I have not read Atlantic High, but I really enjoyed both Racing through Paradice and Airborne. Both include glimpses into his life, friends and family. He had an amazing relationship with his son. This comes through very well in the article that started this thread.|

|camaraderie||Boatless...his other two sailing books are Airborne and Racing Through Paradise. I thought Airborne was excellent but if you did not enjoy Atlantic High, he is maybe not for you.|

50 books. Wow.
What's the best of his sailing books?
I started on called Atlantic High and couldn't get into it. Don't remember why.

Thanks for that Sway, I'm definitely going sailing with Dad (87) this summer, his boat or mine, doesn't matter.

|mstern||Thanks Sailaway. Chris Buckley is an elegant writer, and regardless of your opinion of his politics, Bill Buckley was a character. btw, it has nothing to do with sailing, but if you want to read a laugh-out-loud funny book, try Chris' "Thank You for Smoking". They made a movie of it a couple of years ago that didn't come close to doing justice to the book.|

Sailaway, Thanks for the link to a great article.
We'll be heading to Eaton's Neck this summer to finally locate the buried treasure.

|Big Mick||Great story. You just had to know that anyone that intelligent, thoughtful and literate could never own a power boat.|

The sextant part was my favourite bit.
Nice post...and I've known C. Buckley as a superb writer for some years now. Considerably less baroque than his father's writing, but very cogent nonetheless.
