It was a sunny day in early autumn when Elise Moser and I visited David Homel in his Mile End apartment. The sun sliced low above the street, on over to the brick wall of his building. He read us a passage from Midway. A dog barked and everyone else had somewhere to go.
David Homel is a prize-winning author of novels for adults and children, translator, filmmaker, journalist and teacher. Born in Chicago and long a Montreal resident, his most recent novels are Midway, from Cormorant Books, and Summer in the City, from Groundwood Books, co-written with his wife Marie-Louise Gay.
