Hello.

My new book, Solitude, is Available worldwide.

In the U.K.

 
Wise and witty... What makes this book so valuable and so timely is that it serves both as a reminder of solitude’s worth and as a spur to resistance.
— Nicholas Carr, on Solitude

I came away from this book a better human being. Michael Harris’s take on existence is calm, unique, and makes one’s soul feel good.
— Douglas Coupland, on Solitude
 
Coming soon! A dystopian graphic novel called Labs. Art by the amazing Kenny Park, of course. Check back here mid-June 2017 for further details.

Fascinating. Should be required reading... I was so engrossed by the book that I read until I realized night had fallen.

Magic 8

I've always loved the CBC's "Magic 8 Quiz," where authors answer questions from a random list of eight Canadian writers. So I was especially happy when it came my turn: wonderful questions from Shani Mootoo, Yann Martel, and more.
