Encounters with Authors


Encounters with Authors by Ian Young 

2013, paperback

Encounters with Authors is a memoir of three extraordinary Canadians, remembered with affection, insight and wit:

SCOTT SYMONS, award-winning journalist who exchanged a privileged background for a life in exile as scandalous as his revolutionary fiction.

ROBIN HARDY, who abandoned a promising future as a legal scholar to advocate for the emerging gay movement, defying the "ticking time bomb" in his veins to challenge the orthodoxies of the AIDS era.

NORMAN ELDER: explorer, painter, poet and Olympian, whose multifaceted career was cut short by a law deemed obsolete for a quarter of a century.
