REVIEW: LINCOLN IN THE BARDO
By Andrew HoodIn his first novel, George Saunders imagines the spiritual transition of a nation always struggling to become itself.
By Katherena VermetteIn the store
A stunning and heartbreaking debut novel by Governor General's Literary Award–winning Métis poet Katherena Vermette about a multigenerational Métis–Anishnaabe family dealing with the fallout of a shocking crime in Winnipeg's North End. This will definitely be defended with passion and vigour by Candy Palmeter and is probably the favourite at the onset. Why the favourite? Because as Justin Trudeau has said, it's 2016 and it's time for Canadians to broaden their awareness.
