Michael Blair was born in Montreal in 1946 but was dragged kicking and screaming to Toronto in 1954. He started writing in high school, but it wasn’t until 1968, after a one-week stint with the Royal Canadian Air Force – they came to the mutual understanding that democracy didn’t need his protection; besides, they added, he had a problem with authority, which he promptly denied – that he decided to try to make a career of it. Since then, he’s worked at an assortment of jobs: carpentry, deli counterman, retail store display, freelance art reviewer and copy writer, bookstore proprietor, computer network administrator. In 1980 he returned to Montreal. His first novel (If Looks Could Kill, M&S, 2001) was shortlisted for the 1999 Chapters/Robertson Davies Prize and the 2001 Quebec Writers’ Federation First Book Prize. Since then he has published five more novels, most recently True Believers (LLP, 2015).
