National Review has regularly released letters from readers. In 1965 the journal made up our minds that sure letters merited varied remedy, and William F. Buckley, the editor, all started a column referred to as “Notes & Asides” within which he in my view responded to the main striking and outrageous correspondence.

Culled from 4 a long time of the column, Cancel your personal Goddam Subscription comprises exchanges with such famous figures as Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, John Kenneth Galbraith, A.M. Rosenthal, Auberon Waugh, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., etc. There also are hilarious exchanges with usual readers, in addition to letters from Buckley to varied organisations and govt agencies.

Combative, very good, and uproariously humorous, Cancel your personal Goddam Subscription represents Buckley at his mischievous best.
