Gordon Sinclair--instantly identifiable by his trademark bowties and irascability--was one of the greatest of all Canadian newspapermen. These are his memoirs.
Sinclair's book is as outspoken and entertaining as the man himself, alive with the people and places he knew and loved, or knew and hated. He writes about his early days on the legendary Toronto Star with Morley Callaghan and Ernest Hemingway; his trips to bizarre and exotic places--Instanbul, Devil's Island, Cuba, China; his encounters with some of the most notorious and amazing people of the twentieth century--Mussolini, Hitler, Gandhi, the Vanderbilts, the Duke of Windsor. Sinclair's experience was broad and rich, and so is this record of it.
Will the Real Gordon Sinclair Please Sit Down is a vivid memoir of the life of a unique and unforgettable Canadian.
