Shepping nachas

The announcement of the Scotiabank Giller Prize longlist is a little like Christmas in the publishing world, particularly if you’re fortunate enough to have a title on the list. I am so happy to share that Yiddish for Pirates by Gary Barwin, a novel I acquired and edited, is on the 2016 longlist! I am thrilled, kvelling, verklempt, all of it. Fingers crossed for the shortlist.

And so the busy fall season begins…
