I won the GG!!!

17 November 2009 in The Mistress of Nothing

Today it was announced that I have won the Governor General’s Literary Award for Fiction with ‘The Mistress of Nothing’.

This is such a huge huge honour and, I’ll admit, a complete and wonderful surprise.

More when I have time - but thanks to all for the tweets, mails, calls, and FB comments so far.  I really appreciate it.

Congratulations. I’m always so happy to see an actual story win one of the Canadian prizes.
