Humberto DaSilva

Humberto da Silva was born and lives in Toronto. An early desire to conquer the English language resulted in literary pretensions and numerous short story publications. The inclusion of "Compassion Fatigue" in the Oberon Press "Best Canadian Stories 92" anthology was a high point in his existence. He proudly labours at a day job as a Union representative. Currently he is a videographer, a citizen journalist, and a radical commentator for rabble.ca as "Not Rex" Murphy.
