John Lavery (1949 - 2011)
The CanLit community got the sad news this week that acclaimed novelist and short story writer John Lavery passed away on Sunday. I was very fortunate to have read and reviewed his novel Sandra Beck here on the blog back in November and enjoyed the book immensely. If you're looking for a good profile of Mr. Lavery, The Globe and Mail ran this one, also back in November. And for a beautiful tribute to the man, check out Michael Bryson's post from yesterday at The Underground Book Club.
