Morley Callaghan was born in Toronto in 1903, graduated from St. Michael's College, studied law at Osgoode Hall, and was called to the Bar in 1928 -- the year in which his first novel, Strange Fugitive, was published in the United States. By that time he was already established as a writer of short stories, and it was these, rather than his novels, that gained for him an international reputation. Three collections of stories were published between 1929 and 1936: A Native Argosy, No Man's Meat, and Now That April's Here. Many more have been published in American, European and Canadian magazines, and they continue to appear in anthologies. To Canadians, Morley Callaghan is perhaps most widely known as a novelist and, in later years, as a radio and television personality also.
