Biographical history

Alice Boissonneau (née Eedy) was a novelist and short story writer who also published a notable memoir of life in Toronto. Born in Walkerton, Ontario in 1918, she was raised in St. Marys, Ontario, and graduated from Victoria College, University of Toronto, in 1939. While working as a hospital social worker in Toronto and Vancouver she wrote short stories that appeared in the Canadian Forum, Alphabet and Exile: A Literary Quarterly, and also wrote for the Anthology series on CBC radio. After marrying Arthur Boissonneau, a specialist in forestry, Alice began writing fiction in the isolation of northern Ontario. The novel Eileen McCullough was shortlisted in 1977 for the W.H. Smith/Books in Canada First Novel Award, and was followed by A Sudden Brightness (1994). The memoir Stories from Toronto was published in 1992. Alice Boissonneau died in 2007.
