Lily: A Rhapsody in Red, second book in the King Years trilogy, is a dazzling comic epic of politics, sex and scandal during the 1920s and '30s.
Our guide on the journey is the indomitable Lily Coolican, the former secret bride of Mackenzie King who follows her ne'er-do-well twin brother Jack to the raw mining country of northern Ontario. Jack gets rich; Lily gets Communism. In Ottawa Lily's Mum finds her true calling as the psychic architect of Mackenzie King's political triumphs. King, now leader of the Liberal Party, turns his skills in scheming and spiritualism to running the country. While his ethical elasticity traps him in a web of Grit patronage and corruption, Lily marches towards the dialectical light in service of the byzantine politics of the Communist Party.
Lily is at once a remarkable political meditation and an uninhibited comedy that will outrage and delight, and change forever how Canadians think about the turbulent Twenties and Thirties.
