Some time after the fall

Some time after the fall of the Soviet Union the New York Review of Books became worth reading. The current issue has a fine essay/review by Pico Iyer on William Buckley and his three most recent books. I am struck by the open-hearted appreciation of Buckley as a person that comes through in Iyer’s review and in his reading of these books. To my surprise I see that this review is one of the pieces from the current issue that the magazine posts on its relatively new Web site, and I am delighted to be able to bring it to your attention.
