Adam Gollner


Leonard Cohen once wrote that Montreal was "on the very threshold of greatness." Gourmet agreed and enlisted Adam Leith Gollner to chronicle the city’s best-kept secrets-everything from the best new restaurants and the hottest clubs to the latest on the city’s thriving music scene. Now he’s doing the same for all of Canada. In addition to writing for The New York Times, the Globe and Mail, and Good magazine, he’s also been the editor of Vice magazine. His first book, The Fruit Hunters: A Story of Nature, Adventure, Commerce and Obsession, is out now, and as far as he knows, Adam is one of the few remaining supporters of the Society for the Prevention of Progress.
