#1 national bestseller

When Pierre Elliott Trudeau died in 2000, the outpouring of emotion was extraordinary. Thousands of people across Canada -- and all over the world -- mourned the loss of one of our greatest prime ministers, a man who touched the hearts and challenged the minds of a nation. In this book, Trudeau's close friend Nancy Southam has gathered more than 140 reminiscences and anecdotal narratives from journalists, former world leaders, politicians who battled and debated him, his sons' friends, RCMP bodyguards, girlfriends, canoeing buddies, and household staff. Among the contributors are luminaries as diverse as Conrad Black, Jean Chrétien, Leonard Cohen, John Kenneth Galbraith, Ivan Head, Jacques Hébert, Karen Kain, Margot Kidder, Harrison McCain, Toni Onley, Gordon Pinsent, Christopher Plummer, Roy Romanow, Ed Schreyer, and Barbra Streisand. With the blessing of his sons, Justin and Sacha, Southam has put together a remarkably transparent account of a deeply private person that is funny, honest, affectionate, and illuminating.

Review:

"[Southam's] observations on Trudeau . . . are intimate, arresting, funny and deeply affecting. They and so many others here reveal a humanity and vulnerability which only those closest to him could see behind the cerebral, ascetic, stoic public man."
-- Andrew Cohen, Globe and Mail

"Lavishly illustrated and easy to peruse, Pierre is grist for the mill for readers who revere Canada's most controversial, yet celebrated politician."
-- London Free Press

"Arrogant, shy, charming, rude, kind, thoughtless -- all the contradictory traits of Canada's best-known 20th century prime minister, Pierre Trudeau, show up in this collection of anecdotes by friends and colleagues. . . . Love him or hate him, Trudeau was a one-off, and Southam's book shows him in all his vaunted complexity."
-- Toronto Sun
