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 Edmund White Award and the ReLit Awards, and The Rebellious Tide (Dundurn Press). In 2021, he was named a Rising Star by Writers’ Trust of Canada. His short stories can be found in Joyland, Yolk, Gertrude Press, The G&LR, and an anthology from Arsenal Pulp Press.
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.
