"Edson’s vivid portrayal of the urban area, as well as the working class and underclass, creates a vision of Saint John that highlights the discrepancy between the pre-modern idyllic notion of life in Atlantic Canada and the more complicated reality of the region."

The Goon Longlisted for the 2011 ReLit Awards

The Goon has been longlisted for the 2011 ReLit Awards in the "Best Novel" category. It really is a very long list so there's no real accomplishment here. If it gets shortlisted then it would be cause for celebration. I don't have any expectations.

From the ReLit Awards website:

Canada's ReLit Award--founded to acknowledge the best new work released by independent publishers--may not come with a purse, but it brings a welcome, back-to-the-books focus to the craft. -Amazon.com
