Some good news for Malarky author Anakana Schofield: along with nods from the Amazon.ca First Novel Award and the B.C. Book Prize, Malarky has been nominated for the CBC Bookie Awards.
Anakana is up against Terry Fallis, Lynn Crosby, Linda Svendsen, and Miranda Hill for the Ron MacLean Award for Most Hilarious/Witty Canadian Book. The award is decided by the public so make sure that you show your support! You can vote for Malarky here.
You can also read Brendan Riley's review from The Review of Contemporary Fiction over at his blog where he calls Malarky "a smashing debut." We agree!
