Elizabeth Renzetti is a bestselling Canadian-British author and journalist. Her popular column runs weekly in Canada’s national newspaper, the Globe and Mail, where she is also a feature writer.

Her latest book, a collection of essays about contemporary feminism called Shrewed: A Wry and Closely Observed Look at the Lives of Women and Girls, became a national bestseller upon its release in 2018. Her first novel, Based on a True Story, was also a bestseller and was shortlisted for the 2014 Kobo Emerging Writer Award.

Next, Elizabeth is working on a new project with Kate Hilton. Pear-shaped: How to Survive Midlife When It’s All Going South is a humorous guide to the most anxiety-provoking and least-understood stage of every woman’s life.

Elizabeth has lived and worked as a journalist in Toronto, London, Los Angeles and Berlin. She is the mother of two teenagers and one cat, none of whom obey her, and she makes a risotto that is not quite as good as her nonna’s.

Elizabeth is represented by Samantha Haywood.
