Farley: The Life of Farley Mowat
|Number of pages:||416|
Exuberant, mercurial, melancholic, gregarious and generous—Farley Mowat, one of our most beloved writers, is brought to life in this remarkable biography
Bestselling author James King has created a masterful and intimate portrait of this many-layered man: his failed relationships, his wanderlust, his compassion for the underdog, his lasting marriage to his second wife, Claire. At the heart of this story is Farley’s intense love-hate relationship with his father, a framework, as King points out, for the writer’s successes—and failures.
Granted unprecedented access to Farley’s large circle of family, friends, colleagues—and even a few enemies—King has succeeded in creating a literary biography that entertains, illuminates and captures perfectly the elusive spirit of Canada’s most successful writer.
