A womanizer and future king
As John Kalbfleisch writes in his book This Island in Time: Remarkable Tales from Montreal's Past, "Montreal has seen many royal visitors over the centuries. The first was Prince William Henry, third son of King George III"--the womanizer in question. And it is this book which is featured today in the Globe and Mail's revised book section and its inaugural Web presence, which links to an excerpt from the book. As part of a monthly series, the Globe is focussing on what Canadian book clubs are reading. This Island in Time is the choice of a 30-year-old club in Montreal.
