Raise You Ten by Barry Callaghan

McArthur and Company, 2007

Callaghan's journalism covers an astonishing range, from serious political reporting to autobiography, sports writing, and travel writing. In the late sixties at the Toronto Telegram, he began his career as a books editor and weekly columnist, setting a standard that has rarely been met since. As Peter Newman recently pointed out, Callaghan emerged as one of the most distinctive "personal" journalists in the country.

"Literary criticism and cultural history of the highest order." - Globe and Mail

"Some of the most engaging writing of it's kind to be found anywhere in English Canada" - Toronto Star
