Albert Norman Levine, (October 22, 1923 – June 14, 2005), a novelist, short story writer and essayist, born to Jewish Orthodox parents Moses and Annie (nee Raport) in Ottawa in 1923. Levine's parents emigrated from Poland to Ottawa, where his father became a fruit seller. He was raised on Murray Street in Lowertown, Ottawa, then mainly a French district, he grew up feeling an outsider. He completed his early education at York Street Public School and the High School of Commerce. At the age of 18 he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force as a tail gunner during World War II. He returned to Canada and earned his MA from McGill University in 1949. Apart from a brief return to Toronto in the early eighties and some time in France, Norman Levine made his life in Britain. In 2002, he was awarded the Writers Trust of Canada Matt Cohen Award.
