Brian Moore’s latest novel, The Doctor’s Wife, has become an international best seller and Moore’s first great commercial success; paperback and movie rights amount to nearly $450,000. A long way from Moore’s penurious days as a proofreader at the Montreal Gazette.

Whatever happened to Margaret’s side of the story?

The quality of mercy is surely strained when the editors of Maclean's indulge in such vindictive journalism as the cover story on June 13, It Happens In The Best Of Families. David Cobb implies that everyone else’s view is romantic, inaccurate or both while his is the authorized version of the way it was.

Another Canadian Open Golf Championship is upon us, but if we pretend not to notice it maybe it will go away. I plan to miss this one (in Oakville, Ontario, July 18-24), but I can vividly remember covering several opens. I trudged over hill and dale for endless hours at a stretch—wedged in among the cursing, sweating hordes— afraid even to cough or expel gas, for fear of being shot on the spot by some indignant marshal wearing a pith helmet.
