Steven Heighton

Steven Heighton published two books in 2010: a novel, Every Lost Country, and a poetry collection, Patient Frame. Both books appeared on a number of "best of year" lists and the novel has been optioned for film. His 2005 novel, Afterlands, appeared in six countries; was a New York Times Book Review editors’ choice; a best of year choice in ten publications in Canada, the USA, and the UK; and was also optioned for film. His poems and stories have appeared in such publications as London Review of Books, Poetry, Tin House, The Walrus, and Best English Stories and have received four gold National Magazine Awards. He has also been nominated for the Governor General’s Award, the Trillium Award, and Britain’s W.H. Smith Award. This fall, ECW will publish a small collection of his memos and fragmentary essays called Workbook, and next spring Knopf Canada will bring out a new collection of his short stories.
