Volume 2 , — Richard Gwyn. Toronto: Random House Canada, He has, without the slightest question, brought history to life.

His portrayal of the Old Man himself, of the way he was, is marvellous. And Gwyn has made him relevant, too, by talking about his successes and failures more honestly — and with less sentimentality — than the great Donald Creighton did in the two-volume s biography that still looms large over Canadian political historiography.

Gwyn is at his best when describing what Macdonald was like, and that is no easy task, because Sir John A. He is remembered today largely as an old drunk, and Gwyn explores this subject with startling frankness. It was Agnes, as much as Macdonald himself, who fought off his personal demons, and Gwyn provides great insight into their marital relationship, drawing especially on her diary to do so.

Gwyn captures equally well the unique combination of good cheer, charisma, common sense, and appreciation of human nature that made Macdonald so beloved to his fellow Liberal-Conservatives if not to his Liberal opponents, who found his ruthless usage of patronage and partisan personal attacks hard to stomach.
