The ReLit Awards are awards that celebrate Canada’s independent presses. They’re pleased to have announced this year’s shortlists, and I’m pleased to say I’m on one of them! The Captain of Kinnoull Hill was “long shortlisted” for best novel (other categories include short fiction and poetry). What the hell am I doing on a shortlist with Zoe Whittall? So strange. Very happy and touched by this…huge thanks to my publisher, Palimpsest Press.
Our guest this week was also shortlisted for a little prize, and he won it, too. We talk with Michael Redhill about his Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning novel Bellevue Square. He’ll be in Hamilton on April 14 as part of this year’s Grit Lit Festival. See you there – and until then, hope you enjoy the show.
