Here be dragons telling tales of people, passions and power
Peter C. Newman's autobiography, from his youth as a pampered child in a Czech chateau; to the Jewish kid in short pants being machine-gunned by Nazi fighter planes on the beach at Biarritz, en route to the last ship to escape France in 1940; to a refugee in Canada. He became a journalist and author, writing about Canadian politics, history and business while working as an editor at the Toronto Star and Maclean's. Seeing himself as the perennial outsider, Newman discusses his marriages, enthusiasms, and the controversies that constantly embroil him. 2005.
