Part of The Writing Life series

"There is no other writer in Canada working so imaginatively with language, nor any to match his trenchant wit."
     - The Financial Post

Born in 1948, Douglas Glover grew up on the family tobacco farm in southwestern Ontario, studied philosophy at York University and in Edinburgh, then worked on a series of daily newspapers across Canada before earning his MFA. His ninth novel, Elle, was the 2003 winner of the Governor General's Literary Award for Fiction. In the intimacy of his family's 150-year-old Loyalist home, Glover reads from a selection of his writing.
