Tim Wynveen is a Canadian novelist. His 1997 debut novel, Angel Falls, won the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best First Book. He subsequently published Balloon in 1999 and Sweeter Life in 2003. Raised in Leamington, Ontario, he moved to Toronto in the 1970s to play music, his first passion. He was the guitar player for a while with Edward Bear and later Chris De Burgh from Ireland.
I picked up Tim Wynveen's book by chance, not knowing where it would take me. What I discovered was a gem of Canadian fiction, not unlike Margaret Lawrence. Wynveen demands an emotional connection from the reader, which I couldn't help but offer. His knowledge of music is impeccable, and his skill for combining words and music within the context of a novel is original and impressive. He weaves the two mediums together without dropping a stitch.
