Tom Finn was born in 1931 -- and bred and buttered -- in the old town of Corner Brook West, Newfoundland, then a British Colony. After working in New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and California, he took up residence in Ottawa. A retired federal public servant, Tom has always taken a keen interest in the affairs of his island homeland. He is especially interested in the transformation of Newfoundland, formerly a British colony, following the American 'invasion' in the 1940s, and its union with Canada in 1949.

Malpeque Bay: A State Of Mind
Where to buy in print
by Tom Finn
Finn gives us "real gems" (Darrell Squires, Library Resources Board, Newfoundland) -- sketches from the social fabric and the subtle influence of the American presence in Newfoundland, Canada, in the 1940s and 1950s.
Like a ship in the mist there emerges from these ardent, tragicomic lives, a recognition of ourselves.
