Prize Juries & Street Cred

In this morning's Toronto Star, this short note to the GG & Giller Juries:

The Giller and G-G juries could do worse to establish some street cred than nominating a decidedly edgy small press debut by a photographer, ex-soldier and outdoor mag writer named A. J. Somerset. His Combat Camera (Biblioasis, 255 pages, $19.95) is a mean city tale of a burnt-out war photographer who tries to rescue a damsel, and maybe himself too, from the cheap porno world he’s working in.

Here's hoping both juries are listening.
