Gordon W. Dale
Born in Winnipeg, Gordon W. Dale has lived in such disparate regions as the Sub-Arctic, the Canadian prairies and Central-East Africa, but presently makes his home in California. He began his writing career at age sixteen by winning second place, and ten dollars, in the annual poetry contest of a small-town newspaper. (A copy of the text remains in the family archives, preserved for the edification of future generations. The ten dollars, alas, have been quite lost to history.) Gordon has been a business executive, management consultant, and freelance writer of travel and adventure articles.
Fool’s Republic, North Atlantic Books (May 2011)
Fool’s Republic is about freedom—freedom of action, freedom of thought and, ultimately, the freedom to be human. It is the story of a man's struggle to come to terms with himself and the culture in which he lives.
Quotes about Fool’s Republic:
"Timely and gripping - Fool's Republic drew me in and wouldn't let go. I couldn't put it down." - Meg Gardiner, author of The Liar's Lullaby
"Gordon Dale’s protagonist, the perfectly maladjusted Simon Wyley, whisks us along the tightrope of this keen political thriller through one delicious dope-slap after another; a bright light in the face of these imbecilic times." - John Kain, author of A Rare and Precious Thing
