Jordan Ferguson is a Windsor-born, Toronto-based bookseller and blogger. Once described as, “The Hip-Hop Chuck Klosterman of the North,” he always keeps one foot firmly on either side of the fence dividing the highbrow from the low. He reads widely across fiction and non-fiction, with a special affinity for short stories, books about rap, cat photography and anything that explores the fickle nature of memory and identity. He counts Charles Baxter, Michael Chabon, Jonathan Lethem, Haruki Murakami and Lorrie Moore among his favourite authors.
A recovering yet frequently relapsing nerd who’s worked as everything from a gas station attendant to an editor at a weekly newspaper, he dreams of one day making the front page of Google results for his own name and still doesn’t understand why he insists on writing bios in the third person.
