Dayv James-French has a sharp little eye focused on the telling details of modern life, and an excellent ear for the nuances of conversation and silence. In his stories, the most mundane situations become illuminating; they are heightened to the level of objective correlatives. Dialogue becomes a kind of poetry of the banal. His characters are often unable to hear what is spoken to them, listening as they are to the voices of their own histories. What seems random and coincidental is carefully fitted into biographies of striking psychological accuracy. For all the very real horrors of loss and betrayal suffered by the characters, the stories shine with a hopeful optimism that might be called wisdom.

Dayv James-French was born on Prince Edward Island and has lived in most Canadian provinces as well as spending time in the British Isles, Europe and the Middle East. He graduated from Carleton University and studied writing at the University of Victoria. He currently resides in Ottawa.
