Mini Update Sticky Post: October 13, 2017 This week I’m reading the Alison Watt’s debut novel, Dazzle Patterns, set around the Halifax Explosion of 1917. Also, indigenous author Cherie Dimaline’s compelling novel, The Marrow Thieves. Past the halfway mark of my Giller Prize longlist reading, Ed O’Loughlin’s Minds of Winter. The latest issues of “Quill & Quire” and “Eighteen Bridges”. (Also, I’m not supposed to be borrowing library books, so don’t tell anyone that I snagged a copy of the new Stephen and Owen King novel.)
And enjoying the diverse choices on the Toronto Book Awards shortlist, as well as the Writers’ Trust shortlist. (Talk of this autumn’s prizelist and event reading — here!)
Exploring my grandmother’s copies of Mazo de la Roche’s Jalna stories.
How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
