The Loved and the LostBook - 1951
Peggy Sanderson refused to recognize color bars of any kind. She thought of people as human beings, treated them as such, and wanted to live her life according to her own nature. But in pursuing her obsession to be accepted by the Negro community of Montreal, she ruined a career, thwarted a marriage, kindled hatreds and ensured a tragic end for herself. Here is a deceptively straight-forward, dramatic treatment of a truly complex and important theme. The Loved and the Lost received the Governor General's Award for Fiction when it was published in 1951. Morley Callaghan was born in Toronto in 1903. In the course of a writing career spanning forty-nine years, he has produced eighteen books that have established him as one of Canada's most distinguished authors, and gained him a nomination for a Nobel Prize.
