Synopsis of Corby Falls
Author of Corby Falls, A Question of Return, Continuums, and Lard and Oysters.
Born in Bucharest, Romania, Robert Carr fled the Communist regime at the age of twenty-four through Bulgaria and Turkey. After relatively brief stays in France, where he was granted refugee status, and then Israel, he settled in Canada.
Trained as an engineer – a bachelor degree from the Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest, and a master degree from University of Toronto – Robert worked in the aerospace field for many years. He was involved in the development of Canadarm – the robotic crane attached to NASA’s Space Shuttle – and of Canada’s robotic contributions to the International Space Station. Toward the end of his engineering career he participated in concept studies for ESA’s Mars rovers. He began writing fiction in 1998-1999, almost by accident, prompted by his desire to record old family stories.
Robert lives with his wife, a lawyer, in Toronto. He has two adult children and is a member of the Writers Union of Canada
