The International IMPAC Dublin Award is the world’s richest literary award — the winner takes home €100,000! But that is beside the point (right?). Libraries from all over the world nominate books for their literary merit, and this year Ashley Little’s novel Anatomy of a Girl Gang, which has already won a BC Book Prize and been a finalist for the Vancouver Book Award, is currently longlisted for this prestigious prize! Other Canadians on the list? Oh, you know, nobody special. Just Margaret Atwood, Joseph Boyden, and people like that.
Ahem, also, you can read a brand new story by Ashley Little in the current issue of Plenitude! Subscribe today or buy the individual issue by clicking here.
