Five Canadians made the long list for the IMPAC Dublin award--the richest literary purse in the world. The Canadians on the list include 2002 Giller Prize winner Austin Clarke and--one of my personal favourites--Rohinton Mistry.
Reader: especially of 19th and early-20th century literature and attendant books of history and criticism.

Avid magazine subscriber.
