Geoffrey Stevens and Flora MacDonald's book, Flora!: A Woman in a Man’s World, is one of the best political books published in 2021 in Canada. Stevens says he wrote the book because he wants people to remember MacDonald, who was the most influential woman in Canadian political life in her time (mid-1960s to late-1980s). An excerpt is published here. The book is a finalist for this year's Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing.
