David Silverberg was born in Toronto , Aug. 5, 1948. The author studied medicine at the University of Toronto and eventually became a neurologist practising in the Maritimes from 1980 to the present. He loves Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven, Einstein, Feynman, cello, tai chi, and windsurfing on Belleisle Bay ... among other things. He loves being a father, and he really misses his mother.
With the release of The Divorce of Buddy Figaro, Silverberg has expanded his literary presence, having first flexed his novelist muscles with his breakthrough first novel, The Night-Coloured Pearl: A Taoist Adventure, written under the pen name Tzunami Renivaro (Eastendbooks, Toronto, 1997).
Pearl earned rave reviews for the Moncton, New Brunswick-based author and firmly established his credentials as a talented writer worth watching, particularly for his ability to blend teachings of Tao with a novel's structure and larger-than-life characters.
Now comes Divorce and, next year, look for Tao and Medicine: Insights of the Tao Te Ching into Medicine (both published by Manor House Publishing, Ancaster, 2006 and 2007).
