211 pp, 9 1/4" H. "This collection is made up of short essays, some of which were previously published in 'Maclean's' and 'The Globe and Mail', covering a variety of subjects, from controversial political issues - including his famous anti-separatist polemic - to critical portraits of some of his colleagues - including such luminaries as Underhill, Forsey, and Innis. In addition, there is a scathing lament of the state of book reviewing in Canada, as well as several of his own book reviews. Creighton's incisive wit, his magnificent turn of phrase, his clarity of purpose, all pervade his writing, no matter what the subject or intent of a piece." Wrinkling at top of spine, previous owner's name on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, two small tears on rear hinge - archivally taped, light rubbing.
