Eddy Boudel Tan writes stories that depict a world much like our own—the heroes are flawed, truth is distorted, and there is as much hope as there is heartbreak. He’s the author of two novels: After Elias, a finalist for the ReLit Awards and the Edmund White Award, and The Rebellious Tide (Dundurn Press). In 2021, he was named a Rising Star by the Writers’ Trust of Canada. His short stories can be found in Joyland, Yolk, Gertrude Press, and The G&LR, as well as two forthcoming anthologies.
Eddy lives in Vancouver with his husband where he is currently writing his third novel while listening to the language of birds from his balcony.
