The Butcher of Park Ex is a humorous collection of personal stories inspired by growing up in Montreal's Park Extension neighbourhood. Not fitting in with his ethnic Greek community, and never feeling like part of mainstream Quebec society, Andreas Kessaris sets out on a forty-year search for answers, while trying to navigate a world where he is constantly the odd man out.

The son of Greek immigrants, Andreas Kessaris grew up in the Park Extension district of Montreal. He has a B.A. from Concordia University. His feature column, Read On! with Andreas Kessaris was a popular feature in The Local Herald. His work has appeared on Suite 101.com and Curtainsup.ca. He currently resides in the Town of Mont-Royal, Quebec.
