Favourite Fiction


“Years ago, I read Caroline Moorehead’s extraordinary work of reportage, Human Cargo: A Journey Among Refugees, a book that delves powerfully into statelessness, flight, and migration, and the profoundly courageous journeys undertaken in search of safety and life. This year, Moorehead has a new work, A Bold and Dangerous Family: The Remarkable Story of an Italian Mother, Her Sons, and Their Fight Against Fascism.This is a book to be passed from hand to hand, to colleagues, friends, and loved ones, as we work towards our shared future. My gift list will be multiple books, and will include these brilliant works by Canadian novelists: David Chariandy’s Brother, Kathleen Winter’s Lost in September, and Pasha Malla’s Fugue States.” —Madeleine Thien, 2016 Scotiabank Giller Prize Winner
