Morgan Nyberg

In spite of its noir cover image, “I” is NOT a genre piece. It is a kind of extended literary joke (although not without some metaphysical foundation). This short story-like text is meant to be fun for readers with literary backgrounds who also enjoy cleverly constructed absurdity. A one-sentence synopsis: Reincarnations of Captain Ahab continue to search for the White Whale, seeking help from a character who speaks only in palindromes.


Morgan Nyberg was born in Port Arthur, Ontario in 1944 and grew up in farming country in southern British Columbia. After graduating from the University of British Columbia he worked as a labourer for a decade before finally settling into teaching. For most of the last 30 years he has lived abroad, teaching English as a Foreign Language in Ecuador, Portugal and the Sultanate of Oman. His first book, “The Crazy Horse Suite”, a verse play, was performed on the stage in New York and was broadcast on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. His memoir, “Mark”, won the CBC Literary Competition. His first venture into book-length fiction, a children’s novel, “Galahad Schwartz and the Cockroach Army”, won Canada’s prestigious Governor General’s Award for Literature in 1987. Since then he has added a further children’s novel, “Bad Day in Gladland”, and three novels for adults, “El Dorado Shuffle”, “Mr. Millennium”, and “Since Tomorrow”. He currently lives on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
