I am saddened by the passing of Austin Clarke, the Toronto-based writer and Giller Prize winning author. I met him at the Gladstone Hotel on Queen Street West in Toronto, several years ago, for his appearance at This Is Not A Reading Series. He will be missed, but his writings of the immigrant experience in Canada will live on.
