2015 Governor General's Literary Awards

Guy Vanderhaeghe is the winner of the 2015 Governor General's Literary Award for his short story collection Daddy Lenin and Other Stories.  This is the author's first short story collection in over 20 years.  Jury members had this to say about the collection:   "each story is superbly crafted, razor-sharp, wickedly funny. The reader is carried along in the hands of a master, a seasoned professional at the top of his game."  A list of the English language winners is below with links to our catalogue so you can place your hold on any or all of these great reads.
