The winner of this year’s Toronto Book Award is More, Austin Clarke’s novel about a single mother faced with the news that her son is involved in gang crime.

The Toronto Book Awards honours books that are “evocative of Toronto.”  The other finalists this year were Anthony De Sa’s novel Barnacle Love, Maggie Helwig’s novel Girls Fall Down, and two non-fiction books: Unbuilt Toronto: A History of the City that Might Have Been, and In the Land of Long Fingernails: A Gravedigger’s Memoir.
