Canada Reads victory for Lawrence Hill

Yesterday Lawrence Hill’s novel The Book of Negroes won CBC’s Canada Reads competition. I’m glad since I’m in the middle of reading it (it’s riveting).  The only other of this year’s contenders that I’ve read is The Fat Woman Next Door Is Pregnant, which I loved. (The other books, which were knocked out of contention over the course of the week, were Fruit, Mercy Among the Children, and The Outlander.)
