September 16, 2014 – Watch How We Walk is longlisted for the 2014 Scotiabank Giller Prize
From the 2014 jury (Shauna Singh Baldwin, Francine Prose, Justin Cartwright):
“We’re celebrating writers brave enough to change public discourse, generous with their empathy, offering deeply immersive experiences. Some delve into the sack of memory and retrieve the wisdom we need for our times, others turn the unfamiliar beloved. All are literary achievements we feel will touch and even transform you.”
I’m also the author of two poetry collections: The Dagger Between Her Teeth (ECW Press) and I Should Never Have Fired the Sentinel (ECW Press). I’m currently at work on a new manuscript of poetry. Currently, I divide my time between downtown Toronto and rural Ontario.
“Watch How We Walk is a thoughtful, well-crafted and impressive debut” – Globe and Mail. December 2013
