Publisher Jack McClelland Dead (1922-2004)

Judy Stoffman reports in the Toronto Star, "His favourite author was Jane Austen, but he also found joy in his father's library books by James Joyce and sex manuals in plain brown wrappers. Neither he nor his father believed in censorship. Apart from that, they couldn't have been more different. In contrast to his abstemious dad, young Jack smoked from the age of 14, began drinking at 17 and was known as a ladies man. He was never religious."
