Rising from a hardscrabble childhood in New Brunswick, he became a millionaire at age 25, earned the title of Lord Beaverbrook at 38, and by age 40 was the most influential newspaperman in the world. Fiercely loyal to the British Empire, he was nonetheless patronized by Londons upper class, whose country he worked tirelessly to protect during World War II. David Adams Richards, one of Canadas preeminent novelists, celebrates Beaverbrooks heroic achievements in this perceptive interpretive biography.
