Robert Weaver by Elaine Kalman Naves

Weaver

Over the course of half a century, as radio producer, editor, talent scout, impresario, and anthologist, Robert Weaver nurtured and sustained three generations of writers. Among those he gave their earliest breaks to were Alice Laidlaw (who became Alice Munro), Mordecai Richler, Timothy Findley and Leonard Cohen. This book is an unbuttoned and colourful biography and an extended riff on the development of modern Canadian literature. The book includes archival photographs and interviews with Weaver himself and with Alice Munro, Margaret Atwood, Alistair MacLeod, Barry Callaghan, Robert Fulford and Janice Kulyk Keefer.
