Encounters With Authors
Essays on Scott Symons, Robin Hardy and Norman Elder

By: Ian Young
Sykes Press
80 pages
CA$20 + S&H * Signed by the author!

Encounters with Authors is my memoir of three extraordinary men - Scott Symons, award-winning journalist who exchanged a privileged background for a life in exile as scandalous as his revolutionary fiction...Robin Hardy, who abandoned a promising legal career to advocate for the emerging gay movement, defying the "e;ticking time bomb" in his veins to challenge the orthodoxies of the AIDS era...Norman Elder, explorer, painter, poet and Olympic equestrian, whose multifaceted career was cut short by a law deemed obsolete for a quarter of a century.

"A riveting account of three Canadian iconoclasts who lived their lives outside societal norms and inhibitions. A unique investigative biography – hard to put down!" - James Dubro, author of Mob Rule: Inside the Canadian Mafia

"Wonderful! Clear, crisp and entertaining – a real pleasure to read!" - John Metcalf, author of An Aesthetic Underground: A Literary Memoir
