Oh, happy day!

Some mornings you step in pet vomit, and other mornings you start off the day on a cleaner better foot. I was delighted to see Lands of Lost Borders by Kate Harris on the shortlist for the RBC Taylor Prize this week. Kate and the other finalists receive $5,000 each, a leather-bound edition of their book, and frenzied texts from their editors exulting over the news. The winner will be named on March 4, 2018 in Toronto. I acquired and edited this book for Knopf Canada, and it has since become a national bestseller, won a Banff book award, and been sold into numerous territories.
