Wangersky nominated for major prize
The news is almost two weeks old, but it bears mention nonetheless. Congratulations are extended to Russell Wangersky, Managing Editor of The Telegram, on being nominated for the Commonwealth Writers Prize. An old colleague of mine from The Sunday Express, Wangersky is nominated in the Best First Book category, Canada and the Caribbean, for "The Hour of Bad Decisions", his critically-acclaimed debut collection of short stories. In June of last year, "The Hour of Bad Decisions" was the subject of a panel discussion for an episode of 'Talking Books' on CBC Radio. For more information on the nomination, click here.
