James McCarroll was a talented Irish poet, journalist, humorist, musician, and arts critic in 19th-century Canada. Yet, since his death, McCarroll’s contributions have largely been forgotten.
Revealing a man of immense creative energy and cultural significance, Michael Peterman‘s Delicious Mirth shows that McCarroll’s life and works are outstanding achievements and deserve fresh attention today.
Author Michael Peterman is professor emeritus at Trent University, with 16 books to his credit, and is a summer resident of Feltzen South.
