Remembering Richard

An informal portrait of Richard Hatfield by his friends, family and colleagues

edited by Nancy Southam

Richard Hatfield was a fascinating and flamboyant politician, equally at home on the dance floor of a New York club or a Tehran market as on the floor of the New Brunswick legislature.
Richard Hatfield was a fascinating and flamboyant politician, equally at home on the dance floor of a New York club or a Tehran market as on the floor of the New Brunswick legislature.
As a friend, family relation, and all-hours talker, Richard Hatfield was special to those who knew him. In this book, he emerges as a complex, intriguing and attractive man. He had a wonderful sense of fun and an eclectic interest in the world and its people. He was a late-night carouser, an adventurer, a monarchist and friend of Queen Elizabeth, a chef, and an unabashed fan of artists, writers, craftspeople and musicians.
Remembering Richard is an entertaining and moving portrait of an impressive character, and at the same time a vibrant inside picture of Canadian public life and political backrooms in the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
