IMHO, one of Canada's formost stylists was the almost-forgotten Globe
and Mail writer, J. V. McAree. His book, 'Cabbagetown Store', (Ryerson
Press, 1953), and about his childhood, is brilliant, as are his
columns. He did write other stuff, too. He died in 1956; which would
be as current as we could wish (in a few months).
