Andrew Kaufman, born in Wingham Ontario, is a Canadian writer, film director, and radio producer. His novella All My Friends Are Superheroes (Coach House, 2003) is a humorous love story between a normal man and a super-heroine, The Perfectionist. The novella is set in the Toronto superhero milieu, in which the bizarre characters (The Seeker, The Inverse, BusinessMan etc.) actually personify different human types. It has been translated into Norwegian (2006), Italian (2007), French (translated by Anna Rozen) Éditions Alto (2007), German (2008), Dutch (translated by Caroline Teszler) (2009) and Spanish (2010). A 10th anniversary edition with added bonus material was released in April 2013. Kaufman is the author of several other books, including The Waterproof Bible (Random House Canada, 2010) and The Tiny Wife (Madras Press, 2010). His most recent novel, Born Weird, appeared in January 2013 from Random House Canada.
