Steven Heighton's most recent books are The Dead Are More Visible (stories) and Workbook, a collection of memos and fragmentary essays. His novel Afterlands appeared in six countries; was a New York Times Book Review editors' choice; was a best of year choice in ten publications in Canada, the USA, and the UK; and has been optioned for film. The Irish Examiner wrote of it, "A terrific read . . . the writing has an understated excellence . . . Heighton's descriptions of life on the ice are magnificent [and] he excels in telling a tale of hardship, madness, love, loyalty and sacrifice." Heighton's poems and stories have received four gold National Magazine Awards.
