Meet the Author

Hanoch Bordan was born and educated in Montreal at Baron Byng High School and McGill University, where he discovered journalism at the McGill Daily, moved to New
York where he became an editor with the Herald Tribune,
spent a year in England writing, and when he came back to
New York resumed journalism and then joined a publishing company.

He went back to journalism when, at the request of the Toronto Star, he moved to Toronto, first as a copy editor,
then onto rewrite and reporting. It was while at the Star
that he wrote the series of guest columns on being a single father that form the bulk of this book.

Since his retirement from the Star, and now remarried,
he has continued to live happily in Toronto with his wife, where they live in a house that has a garden with a waterfall,
but no guest bedrooms, the children now safely out of the house.
