University of Toronto Press is very pleased to have been able to participate with TIFF for these events in the launching of Zoe Druick’s new book. With the release of Druick’s book, as well as the new Criterion Collection of Allan King’s film, a new generation of film-goers are becoming aware of Allan’s work, and based on the audience’s reaction, enjoying Allan’s contribution to Canadian cinema.

My first published academic book had been commissioned by an editor of a British series, and once I’d finished that project, I wasn’t sure I ever wanted to write another scholarly book. Not that this first experience had been a bad one, but I wasn’t at a school that demanded a second book for tenure, and I felt I had my hands full with a young daughter, a 4/4 teaching load, and an incurable penchant for writing poetry.
