Kristen den Hartog's novels include Origin of Haloes, Water Wings, and The Perpetual Ending, which was shortlisted for the City of Toronto Book Award. Her short stories have appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies, including the Journey Prize Anthology. She lives in Toronto with her husband and daughter.
"Stories seem to shimmy from den Hartog's pores. Her prose strikes just the right balance of elegance and imagism, at its best inducing that trance-like state readers long for.... We are at her mercy; we believe everything she tells us."
