2010 IMPAC Winner

Gerbrand Bakker’s The Twin is the winner of this year’s IMPAC.  I think it is very worthy!  Click here for my review.

Bakker is not playing with body doubles here.  He is not even, not really, playing with redemption of any kind.  These are damaged, tired people.  As painful as it is, it’s a wonderous experience to dwell with them for a time.

    Another great book wins a literary award: what is afoot? Most strange! Well deserved.
