Johanna Skibsrud - The Sentimentalists
I had nominated this book last year as well, maybe it will be lucky this time around:
The Book of Negroes (2007, 486 pages)
by Lawrence Hill (Canadian)
(published in the US as Someone Knows My Name)
Again, a book from last year, it comes highly recommended.
Room (2010, 336 pages)
by Emma Donoghue (Irish-Canadian, b. 1969)
This makes 8 Canadian books, I am only hoping to get one in from the 8 I nominated thus far.
Last year, I was intrigued by the following two books, so I will put them up for adoption one more time:
The Finkler Question (2010, 320 pages)
by Howard Jacobson (English, b. 1942)
C (2010, 320 pages)
by Tom McCarthy (English, b. 1969)
