Holy Days of Obligation, the third part of Christopher Buckley’s memoir trilogy, is a book about place and vocation. Set primarily in Santa Barbara and Montecito in the 1950’s and 60’s, among the woods and natural elements all around him, in the residue of light lifting from soda fountains, movies, surf boards, and old Chevrolets, the narrator of these crisp essays finds his consciousness forming a faith in the power of “place” and in the work of art.

Christopher Buckley is author of eighteen books of poems and four books of nonfiction. He has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation, and the Fulbright Foundation.
