Buckley’s mother Mary Guibert adds: “There have been and probably always will be those who wish to speak for my son, take credit for his success or put words in his mouth. In choosing these pages to share with the world, I’m giving him the chance to speak with his own voice, for the record … and for his fans to see what a sweet, funny, amazing human being he was.”

The book won’t be published until 2019, to co-incide with the 25th anniversary of Grace, which will no doubt be reissued in many, many formats including a ten-disc edition with bonus colouring book, map of Jeff’s childhood neighbourhood, and his middle school assignment on Abraham Lincoln.
