For fifty years Canadians have had a standing date with Pierre Berton--in Maclean's and The Toronto Star, on the TV screen in Front Page Challenge and The Pierre Berton Show, and in each of his successive bestsellers. In his passion for truth and justice, he has taken on issues few others dared to touch: sex, religion, racism, feminism, national hypocrisy, civil liberties. Now he tells the stories behind the stories.
Berton has lively anecdotes about such figures as John Diefenbaker, Brian Mulroney, and his television show guests, from Lenny Bruce to Malcolm X. He watches the Berlin Wall go up and hears the nightly rattle of gunfire in the ghost city of Seoul. From enfant terrible to national icon, Berton has seen half a centruy of Canadian history in a changing world. My Times is both a page-turner and an important source of contemporary history.
