About the Author

Timothy Findley (1930-2002) was one of Canada's most compelling and best-loved writers. He is the author of The Wars, which won the Governor General's Award and established him as one of Canada's leading writers, as well as Pilgrim and The Piano Man's Daughter, both finalists for The Giller Prize. His other novels, Headhunter, The Telling of Lies, The Last of the Crazy People, The Butterfly Plague, Famous Last Words, Not Wanted on the Voyage, and Spadework; his novella, You Went Away; and his short fiction, Dinner Along the Amazon, Stones, and Dust to Dust, have won numerous awards and are well loved both in Canada and internationally.

Elizabeth Rex won the Governor General's Award for Drama and The Stillborn Lover won a Chalmers Award. His works of non-fiction include Inside Memory and From Stone Orchard.

Timothy Findley was made an Officer of the Order of Canada and a Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

By A Customer on June 8 2004
Format: Paperback
It seemed that the whole world had turned out at the station to watch the arrival of the Santa Fe Super Chief. Dolly Damarosch, the famed dirctor, was there with his luscious superstar, Myra Jacobs. Bully Moxon - that lovable performer who tap-danced his way into the hearts of America - was there on the platform. They were all there...waiting. And none of them had any idea that this was the beginning of The Butterfly Plague.

I love Timothy Findley's writing. Sometimes, I am in such a mood, that only he will do. He is somewhat edgy without being over the top and insightful on the nature of people. A real pleasure to read, he often writes of Canada and in the case of Headhunter, was writing about my neighbourhood. I hope you enjoy him.
