David William McFadden (b. October 11, 1940, Hamilton, Ontario – d. June 6, 2018, Toronto).

"'I'm particularly pleased to inhabit the same world as McFadden,' says Al Purdy, 'even if he's crazy as a bedbug.' Nobody else writes poems like these. They're really good for your head. When you get them you get the feeling that when you read them again next time you'll feel even better where it matters."
