Notice biographique

Taras Grescoe was born in 1966 in Toronto, but grew up in Vancouver. His parents, Paul and Audrey Grescoe, are journalists who traveled across Canada while he was growing up. Grescoe received a B.A. in English from the University of British Columbia. In the early 1990s, he lived in Paris for four years, working as an English teacher and writing travel stories for English and Canadian newspapers. He lives in Montreal. His articles have appeared in The Times of London, the New York Times, Saveur, National Geographic Traveler, Wired, The Chicago Tribune Magazine, and Condé Nast Traveler, and other periodicals.

His first book, Sacré Blues: An Unsentimental Journey Through Québec (Macfarlane Walter & Ross 2000), a detailed analysis of Quebec Society, won the Quebec Writer's Federation Mavis Gallant Prize for Non-Fiction and the Edna Staebler Award for Non-fiction. His second book, The End of Elsewhere:Travels Among the Tourists (McClelland & Stewart 2003) is an exploration of global tourism. In 2006, he published his third book, The Devil's Picnic: Around the World in Pursuit of Forbidden Fruit(HarperCollins) which is about prohibited foods and substances around the world. A vegetarian, Grescoe published Bottomfeeder: How to Eat Ethically in a World of Vanishing Seafood (Harper Collins Canada) in 2008.
