James King, respected biographer of Jack McClelland and Margaret Laurence, has created a lively biography of this many-layered man: his failed relationships, his wanderlust, his compassion for the underdog, his lasting marriage to his second wife, Claire. He traces the emergence of the “public” Farley, while at the same time revealing the depths of the “private” Farley. At the heart of this story is Farley’s intense love-hate relationship with his father, a framework, as King points out, for the writer’s successes—and failures.

Granted unprecedented access to Farley’s large circle of family, friends, colleagues—and even a few enemies—King has succeeded in penning a literary biography that entertains, illuminates, and perfectly captures the elusive spirit of Canada’s most successful writer.
