Сын Уильяма Бакли и его жены Патрисии. Закончил Портсмутскую церковную школу (Portsmouth Abbey School в г. Портсмут, Род-Айленд), затем Йельский университет, где вступил в тайное общество «Череп и кости». Был руководящим редактором журнала «Esquire». Работал главным спичрайтером вице-президента Джорджа Буша-старшего. Опыт работы в этой должности помог ему написать роман «Суматоха в Белом доме», который является сатирой на политику аппарата Белого дома и политические мемуары. В другом его сатирическом романе, «Здесь курят», который получил значительную известность, главным героем является табачный лоббист Ник Нейлор, пропагандирующий курение. По мотивам романа снят одноимённый фильм, вышедший в 2006 году.
