About
John Buckley is author of the novels Family Politics and Statute of Limitations (Simon and Schuster).

His third novel, The Geography Lesson, is about a National Geographic expedition in 1968 that goes comically awry. P.J. O'Rourke says: "The Geography Lesson is more than just a delight to read. It is a finely crafted story with developed characters, coherent narration, intriguing circumstances, compelling plot, and true insights about human motive and motivation. In other words, John Buckley has given us back a literary genre that has been absent without leave for a generation or more. The Geography Lesson is no less than The Return of the Novel.”


Robert M. Poole, former National Geographic executive editor, and the author of Explorers House: National Geographic and the World, says, "With The Geography Lesson, John Buckley has produced a novel that is part mystery story, part adventure, and pure delight. He guides readers on a fast-paced voyage of discovery, from the silent, unspoiled ruins of the Anasazi cliffs to the solemn grandeur of the Inca highlands to the Byzantine maze of the National Geographic Society. All serve as backdrop for Timothy Prescott’s journey of the heart, fueled by one man’s need to reconcile lost love, betrayed friendship, and what seems to be a brazen assault on a cultural treasure. Buckley is a masterful guide who writes with clarity and grace that never intrude on a narrative you will savor and remember.”

The Geography Lesson is available via Kindle and iBooks and other digital book stores. For more information about The Geography Lesson, go to http://thegeographylesson.com

In 2010, The Business of Happiness by Ted Leonsis with John Buckley became a bestseller, reaching as high as #4 on The Washington Post's list

Buckley has written about rock'n'roll for NY Rocker, The Soho Weekly News, Village Voice, Rolling Stone, and National Review. He believes he has atoned for a long career in U.S. presidential campaign politics, and has held senior management positions for more than 15 years in two Fortune 100 companies that won't be mentioned here, for who wants to mix art with commerce? For the past several years, off and on, he has published Tulip Frenzy, a blog focusing on favorite bands and artists such as Luna, the Mekons, Joe Strummer, Alejandro Escovedo, Bob Dylan, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, and the Fleshtones. After letting the original Tulip Frenzy lapse, it's baaaack. To read Tulip Frenzy, go to: http://tulipfrenzy.com
