Biographical Sketch: Ed Kleiman
graduated from the
University of Manitoba in 1953. Six years later he received
an M.A. from the University of Toronto with Northrop Frye as
his thesis supervisor. In 1961 he returned to Winnipeg and
started as a lecturer with the English Department of the
University of Manitoba. He was an Associate Professor at
the time of his retirement in 1996. Beyond his academic
career, Kleiman found time to write three books of short
stories and numerous articles. His first book The Immortals,
published by Newest Press in 1980, delves into the lives of
families living in Winnipeg's ethnic and culturally diverse
North End. Eight years later A New-Found Ecstasy was
published by Newest Press and in 1998 The World
Beaters was published by Thistledown Press.
