Edward O. Phillips


Edward O. Phillips was born in Montreal and studied at McGill, Université de Montréal, Harvard, and Boston University. After teaching in both public and private schools, he embarked on a brief, undistinguished career as a painter. After he had sold pintings to his family and friends, he tried his hand at writing fiction. Phillips’s first novel, Sunday’s Child, was published to extraordinary acclaim in 1981. His short stories have appeared in many Canadian magazines, and one, called Matthew and Chauncey, has been produced as a French TV film. Phillips won the Arthur Ellis Award for the novel Buried on Sunday.
