MAC Farrant

MAC Farrant is the author of ten collections of satirical and philosophical short fiction, a book of humorous essays, The Secret Lives of Litterbugs, and both a novel-length memoir, My Turquoise Years, and a stage adaptation of it, which premiered at Vancouver’s Arts Club Theatre. Her work has been nominated for many awards, including the Commonwealth Writers Prize, the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize, The Van City Book Prize, the Victoria Book Prize, and two Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards. Her new book, The World Afloat (Talonbooks), is a sharply-observed and irreverent collection of postcard fictions. Farrant was born in Australia, grew up in Canada, and lives now in North Saanich BC.
