A Month of Sundays is the latest novel in the critically acclaimed ‘Sunday’ series of mysteries, featuring Geoffrey Chadwick, corporate lawyer, reluctant hero and wry social commentator.
The first novel in the series, Sunday’s Child, was published in 1981 and won the Arthur Ellis Award for best novel. Phillips has been hailed by The Globe and Mail as “Canada’s Oscar Wilde”. He is the author of a number of short stories, one of which, “Matthew and Chauncy”, became the 1988 French film, Salut Victor!.
