Product description

Product Description

Love him or hate him, Pierre Trudeau has marked us all. The man whose motto was "reason over passion" managed to arouse in Canadians the fiercest of passions of every hue, ones that even today cloud our view of him and of his place in history. Acclaimed novelist Nino Ricci takes as his starting point the crucial role Trudeau played in the formation of his own sense of identity to look at how Trudeau expanded us as a people, not in spite of his contradictions but because of them.

About the Author

It started the trilogy that was completed by In a Glass House and the Giller-nominated Where She Has Gone; it was also adapted as a miniseries starring Sophia Loren. Ricci’s novel Testament was the winner of the Trillium Award. His most recent novel is The Origin of Species, which won the Governor General’s Award for Fiction in 2008. He lives with his family in Toronto.
