Caroline Adderson has been hailed by Toronto Star critic Philip Marchand as one of the four most notable emerging writers in Canada, and by Margaret Atwood as one of the country’s most promising women writers. Her work—which includes two novels, A History of Forgetting (Key Porter, 1999) and Sitting Practice (Thomas Allen, 2003), and a collection of short stories, Bad Imaginings (The Porcupine’s Quill, 1993)—has won her two Ethel Wilson Fiction Prizes, three CBC Literary Awards, as well as numerous prize nominations. Pleased to Meet You (Thomas Allen, 2006) was named as a best book of that year by the Globe and Mail, the National Post, and the Toronto Star. In 2006, Caroline was awarded the Marian Engel Award, given annually to a female writer in mid-career in recognition of her body of work. She lives in Vancouver.
