Notice biographique

David Bergen was born on January 14, 1957 in Port Edward, British Columbia. He graduated from Red River Community College with a journalism degree in 1980 and a B.Ed. from the University of Winnipeg in 1985. He currently resides in Winnipeg with his wife Mary and their four children. Bergen has gained a notable reputation in his writing career. His first book, Sitting Opposite My Brother, is a collection of short stories and was published in 1993 by Turnstone Press. This book was short-listed for the Manitoba Book of the Year Award. That year he also was named Manitoba's most promising writer. Five stories in Sitting With My Brother were broadcast on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation program, Between the Covers. In 1995, the Bravo Television Network produced his short story, Bottom of the Glass. His second book, A Year of Lesser, was published by Harper Collins and was named a New York Times Notable Book in 1997 and winner of the McNally Robinson book of the Year Award. In 1999, Harper Collins published his third title, See the Child. His fourth book, The Case of Lena S., was published in 2002 by McClelland & Stewart. His fifth book, The Time In Between, was published by McClelland & Stewart in 2005 and earned Bergen the Scotia Bank Giller Prize. His sixth book, The Retreat, published by McClelland & Stewart in 2008, was also nomiated for the Giller Prize. Throughout the 1990s, a number of Bergen's stories have been published in a variety of magazines. In 2000, Bergen won the Canadian Literary Award for Short Story.
