Weird Willie, PM

book cover image Unbuttoned

Whatever happened to Prime Minister Mackenzie King? Twenty-five years after his death in 1950, his diaries became publicly available. His reputation hasn't been the same since. 

He came to be known as Weird Willie, the PM who communed with ghosts and cavorted with prostitutes. Unbuttoned tells the story of his change of status and what it reveals about our new attitudes toward privacy. 

For the Globe and Mail review.
