Certainty wins

The best book wins again. (We'll find out this week if it could happen for the Gillers too). Yes, because Madeleine Thien's Certainity has won the Amazon Books in Canada First Novel Award. Deservingly-- her novel is wonderful, and if you haven't read it yet you should do so. I read it earlier this year and its power hasn't left me yet.
