She has two daughters, Esta and Kristin Spalding, from her first marriage to photographer Philip Spalding. Linda Spalding is currently married to Canadian novelist Michael Ondaatje; Linda, Esta and Michael are also on the editorial board of the national literary magazine, Brick.[2]

Spalding's work has been honoured numerous times; her non-fiction work, The Follow, was shortlisted for the Trillium Book Award and the Writers' Trust Non-Fiction Prize. She has since received the Harbourfront Festival Prize for her contribution to the Canadian literary community[3] and, in 2012, the Governor-General’s Literary Award for her novel, The Purchase.[4]
