    In 1985, while she was a student at the National Theatre School in Montreal, Brooke Johnson became friends with Pierre Elliott Trudeau.
    It had been a year and a half since hed stepped down as Prime Minister, and now he was walking to work, putting cereal bowls on cartoon placemats, washing dishes and making peanut-butter on toast. He was no longer doing pirouettes behind the Queen but sometimes he was hanging around with Brooke, sliding down ice-covered staircases on Mount Royal.
    Through reminiscences, journal entries and correspondence, Brooke brings to life the story of a remarkable friendship. At once vital and charming, poignant and very funny, Trudeau Stories is about friendship and lossand about who the heck we think we are. Trudeau Stories
