About the Author

Dave Margoshes has published more than a dozen books of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. His collection of stories, Bix’s Trumpet and Other Stories, was Saskatchewan Book of the Year, won the Regina Book Award and was a finalist in the ReLit Awards in 2007. His three novels are Drowning Man, I Am Frankie Stern, and We Who Seek: A Love Story. He has published four other story collections, five volumes of poetry and several non-fiction works, including a biography of Tommy Douglas.

He has had stories and poems published in dozens of magazines and anthologies in Canada and the United States (including six times in Best Canadian Stories), had work broadcast on CBC, and given readings across the country. His awards include the Stephen Leacock Prize for Poetry. He was also a finalist for the Journey Prize.

Some of his stories and poems spring from his days as an itinerant journalist. Margoshes worked for daily newspapers in eight cities, including San Francisco, New York, Calgary and Vancouver, covering everything from politics to murder to cat shows. He's also taught journalism. He currently lives near Saskatoon.

"Margoshes treats us to a wide array of virtuosic storytelling." - Quill & Quire

"Artfully executed..." - The Globe and Mail

One of Amazon.Ca's "Best Books of 2012: Top 100 Editor's Picks"

These are just a few of the reviews Margoshes' latest book has garnered, in Canada where he lives and is a well-known and well-respected author, and I certainly agree with every one and am sure you will too. It's a book that makes you think of your own parents, brings a few tears and a few laughs too. And for some reason, when you read it for the second time, you like it even more.
The book is dedicated to the author's father, a book about one storyteller told by another. Oct. 21 2012

A Book of Great Worth is a lovely book about a father's life told through the son's memories of the stories told by his father. The narrator shares his father's experiences from before the son was born and includes his childhood evoking the time and place through his father's voice. The son also conveys a deep love and respect for his father, and this makes the book an extraordinary read.
