The Canadian Broadcasting Coporation’s annual Canada Reads prize is one
of Canada’s top literary prizes, ranking with the Governor General’s
prize for prestige and reach; it begins early in January with the
announcement of a longlist of 15 recommended books, and then these are
whittled down to a shortlist of five books later in the month. Over the
months that follow, each of the shortlisted books is championed by a
Canadian celebrity in a series of events across the country, with the
grand prize winner being announced in late March after a televised
debate among the five books’ “champions.”
The CBC has just announced its longlist, and I’m delighted to announce
that Radicalized, my 2019 book of four novellas, is among them.
The entire list is incredibly impressive — really humbling company to be
in! — and the five finalists will be announced on Jan 22.
I discussed Radicalized on the CBC radio programme Day 6 last year, and
the CBC reviewed the book in glowing terms, later naming it one of their
summer reads and best books of the year.
I’m sincerely honoured to be included.
