348 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "(T)he first complete portrait of Joey Smallwood - the most loved, feared and hated of Newfoundlanders who, through a singular will, not only changed his country's history but also held political power continuously, almost unchallenged, for twenty-one years and eight months. Smallwood was a man who, in his time, played many parts: a union organizer who became a strike breaker, a journalist who carried on a running battle with the press, a self-proclaimed socialist whose private friends included the right-wing premier of Quebec Maurice Duplessis, the Portuguese dictator Antonio Salazar, and the most controversial president of the United States, Richard Nixon. He trusted no one and believed that the only way to get somewhere was to take the wheel himself. It was this singleness of mind and purpose that saw him through two bitter and hard-fought constitutional campaigns that would see Newfoundland enter Confederation as our tenth province. Horwood cuts through the hype and half-truths, the anecdotes and legend, to get at the man and his times." Very minor wrinkling at top of spine. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top of front hinge area, minor rubbing, faint water mark at top inside of front hinge area.

260 pp, 8 3/4" H. Inscribed on title page: "To L___ / Martin June 18, 2013". "Picking up where 'Young Hunting' left off, Martin Hunter's second memoir explores Toronto in the 1960s as he marries his high school sweetheart, goes to work for the family paper company, fathers three children, and settles into a bourgeois lifestyle. But things don't stay settled for long. His flamboyant brother-in-law moves in with his gay lover, and peace, love, and experimentation arrive in Rosedale with wild parties. Hunter writes a play about Toronto's changing social dynamic that's considered racy but wins an award. The University of Toronto offers him a position as playwright-in-residence, and there he consorts with the likes of Robertson Davies and Marshall McLuhan. 'Still Hunting' takes readers on Hunter's adventures in Europe and the Middle East, reveals his stories of working in the theatre, and shares tales of his spirited friends, colleagues, and loved ones. From Greek shipping tycoons to up-and-coming actors to the Maharaja of Jaipur and filmmaker James Ivory, this memoir of a life well lived is full of unforgettable characters - chief among them Martin Hunter." Clean and tight.
