Author Bio for Barnard, Leslie Gordon

Author Image

Leslie Gordon Barnard (1890-1961) was a prolific Canadian short story writer who had several hundred short stories pulished throughout North America, in magazines such as Canadian Magazine, MACLEAN'S, Family Herald, National Home Monthly, and Canadian Home Journal. Three collections of his work were published - One Generation Away in 1931; Jancis in 1935; and So Near is Grandeur in 1945.

Leslie Gordon Barnard's place in Canadian LITERARY HISTORY has been undervalued but he sheer number of short stories Barnard published, however, indicates not only his skill in writing within the genre, but also the high demand for his work by readers. While not highly praised in his lifetime, Leslie Gordon Barnard enjoyed great success, and as critics have begun to recognize the importance of popular fiction as a cultural representation and a form that can capture the mood of an era or generation, Barnard's contributions to it and his place in Canadian literary history are becoming recognized.

Leslie Gordon Barnard served as president of the CANADIAN AUTHORS ASSOCIATION and president of the Montréal branch of PEN Club.
