A much-discussed bestseller in Quebec, The Trickster tells the inside story of political events in that province during the tumultuous two years that followed the defeat of Meech Lake.

As support for Quebec sovereignty reached record proportions, Premier Robert Bourassa had a clear opportunity to lead his province out of Confederation. For months he led Quebecers to believe that he was moving in this direction, while he privately assured prominent English Canadians that he was loyal to federalism.

Based on interviews with a wide range of political figures, strategists, pollsters and researchers, The Trickster is an umparalleled examination of a crucial period in Quebec's history.
