Nuclear Family

by Jean Van Loon
McGill-Queen's University Press

Jean Van Loon’s father was a metallurgist in an Ottawa lab that contributed to the Manhattan Project. Unbeknownst even to the family, her mother worked for Canada’s Cold War intelligence service. Rooted in memory and history, Nuclear Family carries the reader into the sense of impending nuclear doom and the material wealth that shaped the poet’s childhood.

Jean Van Loon is an Ottawa-based writer of fiction and poetry, whose first poetry collection, Building on River, was a finalist for the Ottawa Book Award.

Jury Statement for Nuclear Family:  

Jean Van Loon shapes a poem with scientific precision. This cohesive collection explores the half-life of familial love set against the unimagined consequences of our species’ nuclear achievements.  Heart-rending and thought-provoking, Nuclear Family asks us all what we can learn from the wrong end of time.

lisan al’asfour

by Nancy Vickers
Éditions David

Elsa is a compulsive collector with a passion for spiders. From childhood until her death, she accumulates all kinds of found, bought or even custom-made objects, which end up cluttering her house to the point where it becomes unhealthy. Her mania damages all her personal relationships and leads her to the worst insanities.

Born in Saguenay in 1946, Nancy Vickers lived in Ottawa for 40 years. Her novels, short stories and tales are written for young people and adults. In addition to her fourteen award-winning books, she has contributed to several magazines and collective works.

Jury Statement for Capharnaüm:  

There’s an old Arab proverb to the effect that entering a hammam is not the same as leaving it. The aphorism applies perfectly to Capharnaüm, as its pages are delightfully crammed with sparkling and flowing prose, supported by a myriad of characters, most of them women, each as unique as the next. And for good reason, since the novel deals with the sordid world of hoarding disorder, an obsession that consists in accumulating objects and/or animals because they cannot disappoint or hurt us. In short, Capharnaüm is a powerful book that stays with you long after you’ve finished reading it.

Lifesavers and Body Snatchers: Medical Care and the Struggle for Survival in the Great War

by Tim Cook
Penguin Random House Canada

From Canada’s top war historian, a definitive medical history of the Great War, illuminating how the carnage of modern battle gave birth to revolutionary life-saving innovations. It reveals shocking revelations of the ways brutality of combat and the necessity of agonizing battlefield decisions created unimaginable strain for men and women of medicine who fought to save the lives of soldiers.

Tim Cook is Chief Historian and Director of Research at the Canadian War Museum. His bestselling books have won multiple awards, including three Ottawa Book prizes for Literary Non-Fiction and two C.P. Stacey Awards for the best book in Canadian military history.

 Jury Statement for: Lifesavers and Body Snatchers: Medical Care and the Struggle for Survival in the Great War

Tim Cook’s writing in Lifesavers and Body Snatchers is consistently vivid, evoking now horror, now pity, now admiration for the sacrifices made by the soldiers and the medical corps of men and women that supported them behind the lines. This history of the Great War is not only a story of sacrifice and carnage but also one of innovation, both in the technology of warfare and the medical technology that supported it and responded to the havoc war wreaked on human bodies. Above all, it is a human story, brought alive for the reader by the author’s judicious use of eye-witness accounts by everyone from military and medical officers to combatants, nurses, and stretcher-bearers.

La tête haute

by Maurice Henrie

Jury Statement for: La tête haute

This collection of essays draws on the very origins of the genre since its founder Michel de Montaigne, through the diversity of the topics covered, the often amused and playful tone akin to a conversation among friends, the stylistic fluidity and absence of pedantry or jargon, and lastly, the admission of personal limitations. This book is both original and deeply rooted in a vertical view of culture, seeking to explain the present through the past and to envision the future at humanity’s level.

Décoder le lecteur : la littérature franco-canadienne et ses publics

by Ariane Brun del Re

Who is the French Canadian literature audience? Which audiences does it seek to engage with or exclude? What are its writing strategies?

It demonstrates how the nature of the readership is central to minority literature.
