Postscript. "Richard Hatfield was a fascinating character. For years he enjoyed great success in his chosen role, as a politician and as premier of New Brunswick.Yet his final election campaign led to a spectacular defeat, when his Cons ervative party lost every seat in the provincial legislature. His style hadmore than a touch of flamboyance whether it was investing millions in th e untested Bricklin sports car, or popping up unexpectedly in Africa, ln Teheran, or at a trendy New'York njghtclub. Richard Hatfield was no stuffed-shirt politician. That much is obvious from tne stories told here about his early days selling potato chips, his move into the political arena, and hismany roles as brother, uncle, premier, world wanderer, collector, and Tory . As a friend, family relation, and all-hours talker, Richard Hatfield was special to those who knew him. In this book, he emerges as a complex, intriguing and attractive personality. He had a wondertul sense of fun and an eclectic interest in the world and in people. He was a late-night carouser, an adventurer, a monarchist and friend of Queen Elizabeth, a messy chef, andan unabashed fan of artists, writers, craftspeople and musicians. This is an entertaining and moving portrait of an impressive character, and at the same time a wonderful inside picture of Canadian public life and politicialbackrooms in the 60s, 70s and 80s. A wide array of Canadians are featured in this book, sometimes as contributors and sometimes as characters in its stories. But it is Richard Hatfield himself who single-handedly destroys the myths that Mantimers are conservative and tnat Canadians are dull!" (from the dj). Very good in dustjacket. 12.50
