The Long and the Short


On the same day I found out that Walls: Travels Along the Barricades did not, sadly, make it onto the shortlist of the B.C. National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction, I also learned that Walls did, happily, make the longlist for the Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction.

Thank you to the Charles Taylor jury for considering my book for this prestigious prize and, especially, for including me on such a star-studded list of fellow writers.

The finalists will be revealed in January. Watch this space for surprised elation or bitter disappointment.
