Morley Callaghan was a renowned Canadian novelist and short-story writer during the twentieth century. While he had a long literary career, his early work is particularly Modernist in its experimentation with colloquial language, pared-down syntax, reportorial prose, and unconventional subject matter. Callaghan was also a well-known Canadian radio and television personality.
