Steven Hayward News

Steven Hayward is a Canadian novelist and short story writer.

Born in Toronto, Hayward attended the University of Toronto and York University. His first book, Buddha Stevens and Other Stories, won the 2001 Upper Canada Writer’s Craft Award; prior to that, the individual stories that would eventually make up this collection were nominated for the Pushcart and Journey prizes, won awards at the University of Greensboro, the University of Arkansas, and the University of Toronto, and had appeared in The Iowa Review, Writ, Exile, The Southwestern Review, Fiddlehead and Canadian Fiction Magazine.

Amazon.ca describes Buddha Stevens and Other Stories as an “intelligent, funny, and engaging volume of postmodern fictions deals with the essential elements of life: love, sex, age, and death.” The review goes on to say, “Unlike many postmodernists, however, Hayward sticks to very traditional plots and never hides his characters beneath layers of coy obscurity, proving that it is possible to tell a memorable story through an unusual, playful structure.”
