Trinidad-born Neil Bissoondath has won many prizes for his fiction and non-fiction, including the MacLennan Prize for Fiction for Doing the Heart Good and The Unyielding Clamour of the Night. He has been a finalist for the Governor-General’s Literary Award and the Guardian Fiction Prize. Bissoondath came to prominence in 1985 with the publication of Digging Up the Mountains, a book of short stories, and a A Casual Brutality, a novel set in the Caribbean, published in 1988. His 1994 polemic, Selling Illusions: the Cult of Multiculturalism, stirred controversy when it questioned conventional Canadian thinking on the subject. Bissoondath lives in Quebec City, where he teaches creative writing at Université Laval.
