Bertram Brooker (1888-1955)

Sierra Club


Canadian artist and writer. Brooker's 1936 Think of the Earth was the first title to win the Governor's Award for fiction. Though Brooker was primarily a painter, his first novel involving a murder that never actually takes place did rather well. He also wrote The Robber : a tale of the time of the Herods in 1949.

The Double-U Show said... book actually sounds very boring. a murder that never takes place. Writing has gotten insurmountably better over the past few decades and the newest stuff is the best.

Which book are you referring to? Bertram Brooker was actually mainly an artist. He happened to also write two novels, which is interesting, but not the focus of the blog.
