Christopher Buckley, the author of 14 books including Supreme Courtship, Boomsday, Thank You For Smoking and his latest Losing Mum and Pup, joined the The Daily Beasts Tina Brown in conversation on May 7 at the 92nd Street Y.

The talk focused on Buckleys new book, which created quite a stir when advance copies were reviewed. (http://is.gd/xOlm) In the video clip here, Tina asks him about the impetus for writing his latest book, his experiences with his father —whom Tina asked of: He was pretty difficult frankly to have as a father, was he not? …There were times when you pretty much felt you had to kind of fight for your life in that setup, as you described. Well…Im the Park Avenue Frank McCourt, Christopher joked. Of course there was also some small talk about politics.
