The Seattle Times has said Jim Lynch “observes like a journalist and writes like a poet.” Lynch is the award-winning author of four novels, two of which (The Highest Tide and Border Songs) have been adapted for the stage. He has worked as a journalist for several North American newspapers, receiving various national honours including the Livingston Young Journalist Award. His latest creation, Before the Wind, is a grand saga of a sailing-obsessed family that The Toronto Star called “breathtaking, emotionally satisfying, and genuinely surprising.”
