Darren Greer is the author of three novels and a book of essays. His novel Still Life With June was the winner of the 2004 Relit Award in Canada, a top three finalist for the Ferro-Grumley award in Manhattan, and was nominated for the Pearson Canada Readers’ Choice Award. Terry Rigelhof in Books in Canada called him “one of the most joyously alive, vibrant young writers in the country.” (Fortunately politicians, spiritual gurus, and novelists are the only the people in the world that can be over forty and still be considered young. ) Still Life with June and Strange Ghosts were also listed in Mr. Rigelhof’s book Hooked on Books: The Good, the Better and the Best Canadian Novels since 1984. His newest novel, Just Beneath My Skin, is available from Cormorant Books in bookstores near you and available for order online. He has also just completed Advocate, his fourth novel, and a collection of strange and bizarre poetry entitled Anatomy of the Posthuman: Love Poems. Darren also works as a client support worker at an 80 bed homeless shelter for adult men in Halifax, which keeps him both grounded, busy and in awe of the resiliency of a single human being.
