300 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). This, the second volume of George Woodcock's autobiography, "deals with the period between 1949 and 1977. (It) details Woodcock's life in the British Columbia bush, his close and longstanding relationship with the Doukhobors, his battles with US immigration officials. We learn of the founding of the influential 'Canadian Literature' review, and we follow Mr. Woodcock on his extended and beautifully-described tours of India and the South Seas. George Woodcock is not only a revered literary critic. He is also a gifted and witty raconteur. (This book) allows us further insights into the life of this fascinating man." ***Pages 268/9 were not printed/published - they concluded a chapter on a controversy concerning a libel suit brought by Margaret Atwood against "a young writer called Wigle, in which (she) was unflatteringly introduced as a character drawn from real life."*** Remainder mark on bottom of text block. Dust jacket has very minor wear at top/bottom of flap-folds.
