Craig Oliver tells all in a book

Craig Oliver's memoir, Oliver's Twist, is to be published on October 25 by Penguin. The blurb says "this many-layered memoir of an extraordinary professional and personal life. The only child of two alcoholics, he spent his childhood and adolescence in the homes of strangers. A chance summer job with the local CBC station launched his broadcasting career, taking Oliver from Prince Rupert, B.C. to Ottawa, Washington, and Central America. He witnessed up close the follies, foibles and occasional brilliance of the men and women who shaped our history over four decades."
Those who know Craig are aware that he has been legally blind for more than a decade.
A great raconteur, the book is sure to be entertaining.

The title links to Amazon for a pre-order.
