Richard B. Wright, CM, is a Canadian novelist. Wright married Phyllis Wright (née Cotton) in 1966 and they have two sons, Christopher Stephen and Richard Andrew. Final Things is one such book, a story as shockingly timely now as it was when it was first published in 1980. During Wright's time at Macmillan, he published his first book, a children's book entitled Andrew Tolliver (later retitled One John A ). Wright's first full-length novel, The Weekend Man, was written in eighteen months while staying at his wife's family cottage in Quebec. Jonathan Farris, 12, leaves his father’s apartment one Saturday afternoon and never returns.
