Reviews

Foster writes with an energetic clarity and a knack for character-revealing detail that bring these Canadian-born, often pivotal, figures to vivid life.

Foster has done a wonderful job of documenting the lives of some of the personalities of the silent era who may otherwise have just as easily disappeared into obscurity.
