Michael Crummey

Michael Crummey is an award-winning poet, novelist, and short story writer who was born in Buchans, a mining town in Newfoundland’s interior. His debut novel, River Thieves (2001), was a Canadian bestseller and won multiple awards. His latest novel, Sweetland, tells the story of one man’s battle to keep his Newfoundland home. Crummey’s poetry has been described as generous, genuine, rich, and warm, with some form of grace always present to redeem whatever hardships his characters endure. His works have appeared in a wide range of magazines and anthologies, including twice in the League of Canadian Poets’ annual contest anthology.
