COHEN, Matt
   Working name of Canadian novelist Matthew Cohen (1942-), best known for short stories and novels set among disturbed urbandwellers in contemporary Ontario. Too Bad Galahad (1972 chap), however, is an Arthurian FABULATION, and several of the stories assembled in Columbus and the Fat Lady (coll 1972) and Night Flights (coll 1978) are fantasy. The Colours of War (1977) is a NEAR FUTURE tale of civil strife for which the Ontario countryside serves as a not ungrim backdrop.
