Canadian Titles up the Frank O'Connor Prize

It’s the longest longlist ever, but I was so happy to see 8 9 Canadian books nominated for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Prize, in particular because I’ve read 5 and them and they were all great and deserve more attention. Check out my reviews for Laura Boudreau’s Suitable Precautions, Daniel Griffin’s Stopping for Strangers, Johanna Skibsrud’s This Will Be Difficult to Explain and Other Stories, and DW Wilson’s Once You Break a Knuckle, as well as my rave for The Big Dream by Rebecca Rosenblum, who I am lucky enough to call my friend. Congratulations to each of these fine writers!

Update: HEY! Lorna Goodison’s By Love Possessed is also on the list. I read that one too. It was great.
