This corner has purchased a copy of the new anthology of Christina McCall’s writing for Maclean’s and Saturday Night, My Life as a Dame: The Personal and the Political in the Writings of Christina McCall. Christina, whom I never met, is one of the household gods at our magazine, and I know many of us will be poring over this book to remind us how well our craft can be done when it is done by the best. When I started making noise about writing a book, Ken Whyte urged me to read Grits: An Intimate Portrait of the Liberal Party. Too little sunk in, but we keep trying.
