City of Toronto announces Finalists for the Toronto Book Award

The City of Toronto and Toronto Public Library have released the shortlist for the 2016 Toronto Book Award, which honours books of literary merit that are evocative of the city. Books of all genres are considered, and 2016 marks the 42nd presentation of the award.

2016 Toronto Book Award Finalists:

  • Howard Akler for his memoir Men of Action (Coach House Books)
  • The Lucky Seven Interview, with Mike Barnes

    The Adjustment League (Biblioasis) is the first instalment in a new noir trilogy by Mike Barnes. This first book sees the patients of a psychiatric hospital coming together to form the titular league, in an attempt to protect themselves from corrupt medical staff. When a mysterious message from the past arrives (from a patient who lived in a locked ward 20 years prior), the nameless protagonist goes on a mission of justice for the powerless. Known only as "The Super", he is determined to fight not only for the patients, but for the mistreated beyond the hospital walls, seeking to atone for his own dark past.
