Introduction

Garner, Hugh 1913–1979

Garner was a Canadian novelist, short story writer, and journalist. Urban life of the lower-middle classes is the background for such novels as Cabbagetown and The Silence on the Shore. His memoirs, One Damn Thing after Another, although flawed, do throw an interesting slant on his experiences and feelings as a proletarian writer. (See also Contemporary Authors, Vols. 69-72.)
