Love Letters of the Angels of Death Goes Global with the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award Long-list

I’m so pleased to announce my debut novel has been included on the long-list of the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Awards.

Of all the books written in or translated into English in 2013, 142 are contending for this award. They come from 39 different countries. Eleven of them are from my home country of Canada. I’m the only name in the Q section, coming right after Thomas Pynchon because — wow. Only ten (or so) books will make it onto the short-list, announced next spring.

It bears repeating that I’m very happy and grateful to the wonderful Edmonton Public Library for nominating the book.

And get a load of this tweet where I’m called a “star” for the first time ever.
