There are so many fabulous books on the Canada Reads Longlist this year! In addition to these three fine books, I’d like to give another Quebec title in translation a signal boost by mentioning “Autopsy of a Boring Wife” by Marie-Renée Lavoie, translated by Arielle Aaronson. A great read!

You want another book title from the Canada Reads list? Best one I can give you is Trees Make A Forest. I loved that book.

Another Canada Reads contender worth everyone’s time: Butter Honey Pig Bread by Francesca Ekwuyasi. It’s exceptional.

Looking forward to reading Yiddish for Pirates, by Gary Barwin. It was a finalist for the 2016 Scotiabank Giller Prize and the 2016 Governor General’s Literary Award for fiction. I’ve not read Barwin, but these also-rans and the Canada Reads list have peaked my interest.

I love the title “Two trees make a forest ” and I gather this book made the short list. Too bad none of these 3 made the cut, but they do sound interesting.
