"Edson’s vivid portrayal of the urban area, as well as the working class and underclass, creates a vision of Saint John that highlights the discrepancy between the pre-modern idyllic notion of life in Atlantic Canada and the more complicated reality of the region."

My Influences

The biggest influence on my writing is Ernest Hemingway. I think his simple style is the best way to do it.

Charles Bukowski
Roald Dahl
Frederick Forsyth
Alistair MacLeod
Jean Rhys
David Adams Richards
