schema:reviewBody""Born in 1934 in Toronto, Peter Growski covered most of the last half of the twentieth century as a journalist and interviewer. This biography, the most comprehensive and definitive yet published, is also a portrait of Canada during decades, beginning with Growski's days at the University of Toronto's Me Varsity in the mid-1950's, through his years as the youngest-ever managing of Maclean's in the 1960's and his tremendous success on CBC's Morning side in the 1980's and 1990's, and ending with his stint as a Globe and Mail columnist at the dawn of the twenty-first century and his death in January 2002." "Growski saw eight Canadian prime ministers in office, most of whom he interviewed, and witnessed everything from the Quiet Revolution in Quebec to the growth of economic nationalism in Canada's West. From the rise of state medicine to the decline of the patriarchy, Peter was there to comment, to resist, and to participate. Here was a man who was proud to call himself Canadian and who made millions of other Canadians realize that Canada was, in what he claimed was a Canadian expression, not a bad place to live."--Jacket."
