tis the season (not that one)

Governor General awards.
National Book Awards. Wow. Strong list, that.

It's hard not to be struck by the contrast in lists between a bunch of heavies, or at least books that have gotten widely reviewed in the States, compared with the relative unknowns on both major Canadian awards. Still, it makes for a busy season. I've always thought Ken Kalfus was underrated and Echo Maker looks amazing. I see some of the sharpies are all over it.
