About Barry Pomeroy

Barry Pomeroy is the author of several novels and almost as many collections of short stories. He received his PhD. from the University of Manitoba in 2000, although he refuses to let that be a limitation. He is an itinerant English professor, boat designer and builder, traveller, carver, sometimes mechanic, carpenter, and web designer. As a writer he is responsible for the novel Naked in the Road and the scandalous short story collection The Bloody History of the Fertile Crescent.

About the Series: Ray
As his life fragments, and he is fired from his job and fights with his girlfriend, Mexican vacations cannot cheer the nameless narrator of In Light of Ray. In desperation, he decides to follow the cryptic advice of Ray, a shadowy figure whose obscure suggestions takes him away from his friends and into unemployment, poverty and then homelessness. Drifting around a grittier Vancouver, he begins to think that the only way to fix his life is to die although this is profoundly disrupted when he meets Weed, a girl abandoned on Wreck Beach. Ultimately affirming, the first novel in the series details a man’s drift from the Vancouver streets and the emptiness of dead-end jobs to a choice between embracing community and connection or disappearing into a waiting squalor.

The second novel, Working for Ray, follows these characters as they travel across Canada, and along the way learn how to reconcile their past.
