"In Uphill with Archie, William MacLeish paints an indelible portrait of a priveleged world, a charmed existence in which he moved from pleasing his father to making his father proud. Affectionate, moving, and marvelously evocative, it is a book sure to appeal to readers of such classic works as Calvin Tompkins's Living Well Is the Best Revenge and Susan Cheever's books about her parents, Home Before Dark and Treetops."--Jacket."
