James Sinclair Ross

James Sinclair Ross
Lifetime Award for Excellence in the Arts, 1993


ross

James Sinclair Ross is one of Canada's finest craftsmen of the novel and short story. He is the author of 4 novels and 18 short stories, published between 1934 and 1974, many of which uniquely capture the harsh lives of prairie people during the Depression years. Largely unheralded as a writer until his seminal 1941 novel As For Me and My House was reprinted in Canada in 1957, he kept his job at the Royal Bank until his retirement in 1968. The power of his work is credited with influencing many Canadian prairie writers.
