The 2014 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award longlist was announced back in November, and it has a surprising number of titles on it that have been discussed in our podcasts, and one that we chose as our monthly pick. Just thought we’d point that out to you, regarding our exquisite taste in books, and also give a good old HUZZAH to the Canadian authors nominated for the prize (some of which may feature in future podcasts).
MONTHLY PICK The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
The Chemistry of Tears by Peter Carey
Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon (will be discussed in the next podcast)
People Park by Pasha Malla
Ru by Kim Thuy
Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese
Finton Moon by Gerard Collins
419 by Will Ferguson
The Headmaster’s Wager by Vincent Lam
Anna From Away by D.R. Macdonald
A Blessed Snarl by Samuel Martin
Above All Things by Tanis Rideout
The Purchase by Linda Spalding
A Matter of Life and Death or Something by Ben Stephenson
The shortlist will be announced in April and the winner will be announced in June. Here’s hoping that one of our favourites wins!
