As chief parliamentary correspondent for CTV News, Craig Oliver is one of Canada’s most recognized and respected journalists, a newsman who has reported on the major political figures and news stories of our times with passion, insight, and bracing candour.

He brings those same qualities to this many-layered memoir of an extraordinary professional and personal life. The only child of two alcoholics, he spent his childhood and adolescence in the homes of strangers. A chance summer job with the local CBC station launched his broadcasting career, taking Oliver from Prince Rupert, B.C. to Ottawa, Washington, and Central America. He witnessed up close the follies, foibles and occasional brilliance of the men and women who shaped our history over four decades.

At the same time, Oliver pursued a personal passion for Canada’s wilderness rivers. For 30 years, he and a close company of companions—all political and media figures, from Tim Kotcheff and John Macfarlane to Eddie Goldenberg and Pierre Trudeau—paddled some of the remotest waters in western and northern Canada.

Most surprising is the revelation that this comfortable television presenter has been legally blind for a decade.

A fascinating look at the power brokers in Ottawa. Craig Oliver gives you a different perspective of the movers and shakers of the last 40 years. Perhaps the book needed a little more editing but I loved it.

As a fan of Craig Oliver, my husband and I both enjoyed his autobiography. Now, we love him even more.

When I heard Craig Oliver was writing a book, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Having watched his newscasts, commentaries and Friday evening conversations with Steve Murphy on Halifax's ATV News, I expected it to be forthright and informative. I was not disappointed.

In his memoir, Oliver’s Twist, Craig takes us through his life as a journalist and within the pages we are introduced to the many interesting people he has met on his journey. Oliver’s Twist will alternately make you smile, frown, perhaps shed a tear, and definitely laugh out loud.

No person or subject is out of bounds for Mr. Oliver, and anyone interested in the news – past and present – will find themselves enthralled with the many stories and anecdotes throughout the book. Oliver takes us on a journey through both his professional and personal lives, with none of the 'airbrushing away' of details so often seen in a biography.

This book is an easy recommend, and being a bit of a newshound myself, I am so grateful to Mr. Oliver for taking the time to write it.
