Eminent Canadians: Candid Tales of Then and Now
|Price on sale||$13.95 (reduced from $22.99)|
Written by John Fraser.
Published by McClelland & Stewart Ltd., 2000.
|Of the eight Canadians Fraser subjects to his informed,
opinionated, and highly entertaining scrutiny, four represent the past and four
the present of a key national institution: the Anglican Church, The Globe
and Mail, the prime ministership and the monarchy. By juxtaposing rich
portraits of past leaders with candid tales about their present or most recent
counterparts, Fraser sheds light on just how exasperating an entity Canada has
always been. And how lively a history it has.
Eminent Canadians has a serious purpose, but it is not a serious book. There is much fun to be had reading his tales of eight eminent Canadians who, as Fraser says, did the best they could to live up to the challenges of their offices and times.
