About the Author
Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall's first book was an account of the year he spent in deep cover, living with the homeless in Toronto's infamous Tent City. Down to This: Squalor and Splendour in a Big-City Shantytown was nominated for the 2005 Pearson Writers' Trust of Canada Non-Fiction Prize, the Drainie-Taylor Biography Prize, the Trillium Award and the City of Toronto Book Award. The following year, he was awarded the Knowlton Nash Journalism Fellowship at Massey College and also played the role of Jason--a bad-mannered, well-dressed journalist--on CBC-TV's The Newsroom. He is also the author of Ghosted, his first novel, and Hungover, a nonfiction effort to find the cure for a hangover. He currently teaches writing at the University of Toronto's School of Continuing Studies.
