David Adams Richards, C.M., O.N.B. (b. October 17, 1950, Newcastle, New Brunswick).

Michael Anthony 'Tony' Tremblay (b. 1962) was teaching in Fredericton at the time of publication.

"David Adams Richards is one of Canada's foremost writers. A writer of poetry, short fiction, screenplays, nonfiction, essays and polemics, Richards' most prodigious work thus far has been as a novelist. With fifteen books and all of the major Canadian literary prizes to his credit, Richards is still relatively unknown by the reading public. This collection, the first book-length study of Richards' work, is meant to remedy that situation. Richards' interview with the editor and opening essay situate his own beginnings as a writer and his dogged persistence in staying the course."
