Praised by the Montreal Gazette as “one of Canada’s best writers” and by the Globe and Mail as “inventive and electrifying,” David Bergen is the bestselling author of eleven novels and two collections of short stories.
Among his most acclaimed works are The Time in Between, winner of the Scotiabank Giller Prize; The Matter with Morris, winner of the Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award and the Margaret Laurence Award for Fiction, and a finalist for the Giller Prize and the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award; The Age of Hope, a national bestseller and a finalist for Canada Reads; and Out of Mind, winner of the McNally Robinson Book of the Year Award.
Bergen lives in Winnipeg and was awarded the Matt Cohen Award: In Celebration of a Writing Life by the Writers’ Trust of Canada in 2018. Away from the Dead is his thirteenth book of fiction.
