Note to Yann Martel

Last night, to better illustrate the Prime Minister’s phone-calling prowess, an official photograph was distributed with a short synopsis of Mr. Harper’s call to the Trinidad and Tobago prime minister.

Visible over his right shoulder is the Prime Ministerial bookshelf and it is possible there to identify at least a couple of books, namely The Secret Mulroney Tapes (by Peter C. Newman) and French Kiss (by Chantal Hebert). Also, possibly a book about Africa.

Feel free download, peruse and try to spot any familiar book spines here.

As noted below, our well-read commenters have identified Duty: Life of a Cop, The Fate of Africa and Heart Matters.
