Elyse Friedman is the author of the novels Then Again and Waking Beauty, Long Story Short: A Novella and Stories and the poetry collection Know Your Monkey. Her work has been shortlisted for the Trillium Book Award, the Toronto Book Award and the ReLit Award, and has won a Gold National Magazine Award for fiction. She presents the gleefully scathing, surprisingly touching The Answer to Everything. The novel, about a gifted artist (and even more gifted freeloader) who decides to start his own cult, explores the gap between reason and faith, and the human need for connection, fulfillment and transcendence.
