Montreal-born Stéphane Bourguignon is a revered humorist in Quebec. He is the author of the award-winning television series Life, Life, which is regarded in Quebec with the same veneration as Seinfeld. He was awarded the prestigious Prix Gémeaux for his work on the series. His novels (A Slight Case of Fatigue is the third) have been received with the same enthusiasm. In 2003, Bourguignon received the Prix littéraire intercollégial for the French original of A Slight Case of Fatigue—Un peu de fatigue.
