First prize for 1997 memoir contest

The first prize for The Ottawa Citizen’s 1997 WriteNow! memoir contest, with Charles Gordon’s favourable review (PDF format), did much to remove distractions from keeping a daily date with my writing desk.

My pursuit to “hone the craft” was also advanced by reading E.M. Forster’s Aspects of the Novel — his subject matter for the annual Cambridge Clark Lectures during the academic year 1926-27 — a book which greatly influenced me during the drafting of A Marginally Noted Man.
