Noah Richler was raised in Montreal and London, England. He was a prize-winning producer and host of documentaries and features for BBC Radio for fourteen years before he returned to Canada in 1998 to join the fledgling National Post, where he was the first books editor and then a literary columnist. He has contributed to numerous publications in Britain, including Granta, The Guardian, Punch and The Daily Telegraph, and in Canada to The Globe & Mail, Maclean's, Maisonneuve, Saturday Night and The Walrus. He was the host of the CBC's Richler on Radio and produced "A Literary Atlas of Canada," the ten-part radio series based on the material for the book, for CBC Radio One's Ideas. This program was re-broadcast in August. Noah divides his time between Toronto and Nova Scotia with his wife and two children.
