A collection spanning the career of Don Coles, this compilation of personal essays and reviews combines published prose with vital new pieces that explore the genres of biography and translation. Summing up decades of reading and adventurous travel while investigating the influences on his writing, this assemblage presents Coles as one of Canada's most incisive literary critics, revealing his unconventional assessments of Graham Greene, Thomas Mann, Leo Tolstoy, Victor Hugo, Robert Frost, Albert Camus, George Orwell, and many others. Passionate and progressive, the book is at once a personal memoir and discriminating literary criticism.
