Short biography
Although his official bio's all state that Howard Norman isn't Canadian, having been born in Toledo, Ohio, and raised in Michigan, he now holds dual citizenship and does consider himself Canadian. I have this directly from Mr. Norman, who I met at a book festival on October 3, 2009. When I mentioned that many people are surprised to learn that he is not Canadian, he said "Oh, but I AM." Good enough for me.
