Born to Canadians living in Baltimore, MD, Susan Glickman convinced her parents to move home to Montreal at the age of one and a half. But that initial sense of being from somewhere never left her. She has lived in England, the United States and Greece and extensively travelled across Europe, Asia and America before settling in Toronto. Susan's love for travel is matched by her love for books. She has worked in bookstores, in publishing, and as an English professor at the University of Toronto. The author of five highly regarded poetry collections, including Running in Prospect Cemetery: New & Selected Poems. The Violin Lover is her first novel. Her critical study, The Picturesque and the Sublime: Poetics of the Canadian Landscape, won both the Gabrielle Roy Prize and the Raymond Klibansky Prize.
