Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

The life of one of the most influential builders of 20th century Canadian culture, in his own words.
Words to Live By is the memoir of William Whitehead who, from the 1950s onwards, has been a participant in, and spectator to, the development of Canadian culture. But Whitehead's book does far more than document the events and people of this dynamic period -- it tells the story of a prairie boy who trained as a scientist but fell in love with the stage, the story of a man whose adventures and misadventures in the written and spoken word have given new meaning to the phrase "words to live by," as it tells the story of a man deeply engaged with and involved in our country's theatre, radio, television, and literature. Reading Words to Live By is like having the best seat at an amazing dinner party, one where your companion delights and entertains you into the small hours of the night.

Review Quote*

"This is a charming account of a time gone by-by a masterful raconteur."
