Lisa Foad


Lisa Foad’s debut story collection, The Night is a Mouth (Exile Editions, 2009), has been praised by The Globe and Mail as “a brand-new thing” – says The Globe, Foad writes “with courage and surprising panache.” And EYE Weekly, in its five-star review, declares, “It’s writing that knows what the hell it wants to achieve” – “her DeLillo-sized sentences create a linguistic tension that could cause the pages to flip autonomously” – Foad “juices the poetry out of everyday speech.” Her creative work has appeared in Matrix, Exile: The Literary Quarterly, and Red Light: Superheroes, Sluts and Saints, and she contributes cultural commentary to a variety of publications, including The Globe And Mail, NOW Magazine and Xtra. Lisa Foad lives in Toronto and is at work on her first novel.
