Rogues and rebels : unforgettable characters from Canada's West by Brian Brennan( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brian Brennan chronicles the mavericks, iconoclasts, and adventurers who threw away the rulebook, thumbed their noses at convention, and let their detractors howl. They never retracted, never explained, never apologized, and they got things done. Discover the unforgettable characters who made the West what it is today. You know some by name: Jack Webster, Nellie McClung, and Tommy Douglas. Others are less well-known: the inventor of the Bloody Caesar; those who assumed fake identities to further their ambitions; Brother XII, the mysterious cult leader; and more."--

Leaving Dublin : writing my way from Ireland to Canada by Brian Brennan( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leaving Dublin: Writing My Way from Ireland to Canada is an engaging and entertaining exploration of a man?s life that begins in middle-class Dublin, includes stints as a travelling musician and broadcaster in Canada, and culminates in a career as an award-winning journalist and bestselling author. With passion, candour, humour and vivid stories, Brian Brennan tells how he left a soul-destroying job in the Irish civil service to seek new opportunities in a country where he had no friends and no family connections. He offers revealing glimpses of suburban life in the postwar Ireland of the 1950s, the commercial music scene in Canada during the 1960s, and the commercial radio and newspaper scene during the last third of the 20th century, when journalism went from being a business with a conscience and a higher purpose to an enterprise owned by large corporations that care more about private profit than public debate
