About this title:

Synopsis:

A political insider offers a revealing perspective and examines the public and private life of BCs controversial premier.

In the blood-sport arena of provincial politics, BCs enigmatic premier, Christy Clark, has defied the pundits to win both party leadership and an upset election victory against all odds. Made deputy premier in 2001 shortly after her first foray into public life, she shunned Gordon Campbells cabinet solidarity to return to private life in 2004. After a bold run at becoming Vancouvers mayor, she launched a successful media career as a CKNW talk show host. In 2011, she surrendered that security and entered the Liberal leadership race, shocking the partys inner circle as she claimed her spot as Campbells successor. The campaigner known in her home province simply as Christy has been underestimated by many. Since her surprising usurpation of the BC Liberal Party in 2011 and their stunning re-election in 2013, BCs first elected female premier has ruffled more than a few feathers; she has also won many new supporters while employing her own unique leadership style.

In this revealing look at the woman behind the trademark smile, political insider Judi Tyabji traces Clarks journey from middle-class roots to her political awakening and rapid rise to power. Based on meticulous research and extensive interviews with over thirty public figures and the premier herself, Tyabjis Christy Clark: Behind the Smile paints an intimate portrait of one of the most influential women in Canadian politics today.

About the Author:

Judi Tyabji was born in Calcutta, India, and immigrated to Canada with her family as a young child. In 1991, at the age of twenty-six, she became the youngest BC MLA on record at the time and the first to give birth while in office. She is the author of two previous books, Political Affairs and Daggers Unsheathed: The Political Assassination of Glen Clark. She lives in Powell River with her husband, Gordon Wilson.
