Heather Robinson has made Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King's bizarre and paradoxical psyche the mainspring of a historical novel of consummate invention, audacity and wit.
Set against the turbulent background of World War I and Canada's struggle to achieve political maturity, Willie: A Romance hurls Mackenzie King into not only a love affair but a love triangle. A unique and absorbing panorama of wartime Canada and wartime Ottawa, official and unofficial, the novel is richly peopled with historical characters: King, Talbot Papineau, Sir Wilifrid and Lady Laurier, Lord Beaverbrook, John D. Rockefller Jr., among others.
Sympathetic and fascinating, Willie: A Romance delves deeply into the secret life of Mackenzie King, exposing an extraordinary mixture of buffoonery and cunning, paranoia and ambition, puritanism and prurience.


Winner - Books in Canada First Novel Award - 1983

"Heather Robertson has set herself a difficult and delicate task and has pulled it off with a wonderful mixture of bold irreverence and unabashed love."

- Timothy Findley
