Abstract:

"Spotlighting an extraordinary career, this autobiography reviews the author's accomplishments working--and playing--alongside some of Canada's greatest writers. These humorous chronicles relate the projects he brainstormed for writer Barry Broadfoot, how he convinced eventual Nobel Prize contender Alice Munro to keep writing short stories, his early morning phone call from a former Prime Minister, and his recollection of yanking a manuscript right out of Alistair MacLeod's own reluctant hands--which ultimately garnered MacLeod one of the world's most prestigious prizes for fiction. Insightful and entertaining, this collection of tales provides an inside view of Canadian politics and publishing that is rarely revealed, going behind the scenes and between the covers to divulge a treasure trove of literary adventures"--Publisher description.
