Thomas Trofimuk’s first novel, The 52nd Poem, won the George Bugnet Novel of the Year Award and the City of Edmonton Book Prize. His second, Doubting Yourself to the Bone, was on The Globe & Mail’s top 100 books list for 2006. His third, Waiting for Columbus, was published in the US, Canada, the UK, Serbia, Poland, Brazil, and China, and nominated for the 2011 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. His latest novel, This Is All a Lie (Great Plains), is a formally complex exploration of the consequences of losing intimacy. Quill & Quire calls it a powerful, dazzing accomplishment, and The Edmonton Journal calls it “excruciatingly good.” Trofimuk lives in Edmonton.
