Thomas King Biography

Thomas King is a First Nations novelist, short-story writer, essayist, screenwriter, and photographer. King has become one of the foremost writers of fiction about Canada's Native people.

King was the first Aboriginal person to deliver the prestigious Massey Lectures and is also the bestselling, award-winning author of six novels, two collections of short stories and two nonfiction books.

He won the 2014 Governor General's Award for Literature for his novel, The Back of the Turtle. His non-fiction tour de force, The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America won the BC National Award for Canadian Non-fiction and the RBC Taylor Prize, as well as being a finalist for 2015 CBC Canada Reads. He is a recipient of the Order of Canada.

He is currently a Professor of English at the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Previously, he taught Native American Studies at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, and at the University of Minnesota.
