boYs: Michael Crummey's Favourite Book of 2007
My regular copy of Quill & Quire was in the mail this afternoon. A Q&Q best of 2007 issue, with a separate supplementary guide inside. A lot of reviews from the past year at Q&Q, and some colour call outs, where they've asked prominent Canadian writers what their favourite books were. Michale Crummey chose Kathleen Winter's boYs. "Winter's narrative voice is complex and completely engaging; the stories are quietly hilarious and heartbreaking." Can't wait to use that on the second printing.
