WHAT IT MEANS TO BE ENGLISH IN A, VERY FRENCH QUEBEC

The good old days are good no more Last winter, I took a friend of mine from Calgary to hear Yvon Deschamps, the popular Quebec satirist.

FAMOUS LAST WORDS FROM LEONARD COHEN

Last fall I’d heard from a friend that Leonard was passing through Toronto. Which is generally the way people who know Leonard hear about him.

I would like to thank Jack Ludwig very much for writing the very real and human piece about Derek Sanderson — The Unreal Derek Is Unreal (April). It is the first story I have ever read that tells people the truth without making him into a sex maniac or a complete phony.
