And now the GGs

Nino Ricci wins the GG award for fiction for his novel The Origin of Species: "The young searching protagonist of Nino Ricci's The Origin of Species takes us into the now distant world of the post-Trudeau 1980s," the jury said in its citation. "Set mostly in Montreal, with an illuminating voyage to the Galapagos at its centre, this exquisite novel is both tough and tender and, in the end, confirms our belief in the resilience of the human heart" (from CBC books). Well, it sounds like a winner.
