Phillip Ernest is a Canadian writer with an extraordinary personal history, as even the briefest version of his bio suggests:

Born in 1970, Phillip Ernest grew up in New Liskeard, Ontario. Fleeing home at fifteen, he lived on Toronto’s skid row until he was twenty-eight.

The Vetala (LLP, 2018) is his first novel.
