Mike Steeves

Mike Steeves attended King’s College University in Halifax, where he received a BA in Political Science and English Literature, and Concordia University, where he completed an MA in English Literature. Dubbed “a brilliant, singular voice in Can Lit: funny and fresh and fast” by Miriam Toews, Steeves has just published his debut novel, Giving Up (Book Thug). At times funny, at other times sad, and more than often a mixture of the two, Giving Up is a stylistically adventurous and deeply felt account of what goes on in the inner sanctum of a modern couple’s apartment. Steeves lives with his family in Montreal.
