Anthony De Sa is a Canadian novelist and short story writer. He graduated from University of Toronto and did his post-graduate work at Queen’s University. In 2004, De Sa took a one-year sabbatical and attended the Humber School for Writers.[1] He subsequently submitted Barnacle Love, a volume of linked stories about a Portuguese immigrant family, to publishers, and Random House of Canada published the collection in March 2008. Barnacle Love was a shortlisted finalist for the 2008 Scotiabank Giller Prize.[2] and the 2009 Toronto Book Awards.

De Sa expanded on the story "Shoeshine Boy" from Barnacle Love, set against the 1977 murder of Emanuel Jaques, into a novel. Titled Kicking the Sky, it was published by Doubleday Canada on September 10, 2013.[3]
