CKCU Literary News
Wednesday November 20th, 2019 with Hans G. Ruprecht.
The CKCU-FM radio 93.1 Funding Drive Special: Ian Williams is the Scotiabank Giller Prize winner 2019.

The CITATION reads as follows: „Ian Williams’s [novel] Reproduction [published by Random House Canada, 2019] is many things at once. It’s an engrossing story of disparate people brought together and also a masterful unfolding of unexpected connections and collisions between and across lives otherwise separated by race, class, gender and geography. It’s a pointed and often playful plotting out of individual and shared stories in the close spaces of hospital rooms, garages, mansions and apartments, and a symphonic performance of resonant and dissonant voices, those of persons wanting to impress, persuade, deny, or beguile others, and always trying again.“
