Robert Everett-Green was born in Edmonton and grew up there and on a farm in eastern Alberta. His short fiction has won a National Magazine Award (silver), and his short non-fiction appears regularly in the Globe and Mail. He has just published his first novel. In a Wide Country (Cormorant) is the story of a mother and son traveling across Canada in the summer of 1961, as Corinne re-imagines her past in stories while Jasper yearns for the stable life they had in Winnipeg. A warm review of the novel in the Globe and Mail points to the “hard truth beneath the quirkiness.” Robert Everett-Green lives in Montreal.
