Robert Sedlack was born and raised in Calgary. His first novel, The African Safari Papers, has been published in numerous languages and was chosen by "The Globe and Mail" as a Best Book of 2001. He lives unhappily in Los Angeles, winters joyfully in Jasper, Alberta, and has completed a television movie for CTV.
"Until The Horn of a Lamb, no Canadian novelist has documented so intimately and authentically the ongoing creation of popular cultural myth by people telling that set of stories about hockey over bad coffee in donut shops and arena corridors. Sedlack is as fastidious a narrator as Dickens or Hugo." -- "The Globe and Mail" Praise for "The African Safari Papers" "Robert Sedlack has written a spectacular first novel. Hysterically funny and darkly comic. I devoured The African Safari Papers. I want his second novel now." -- Rick Mercer "Robert Sedlack is a writer worth watching. Like his narrator, he is articulate, cheeky and, in the best sense, dangerous. Above all, he knows how to keep a reader reading. More please!" --Timothy Findley
