Amazon.ca congratulates Jessica Grant, winner of the 34th annual Amazon.ca First Novel Award for Come, Thou Tortoise (Knopf Canada). Head judge Stuart Woods–editor of the award’s co-presenter, Quill & Quire magazine–called the book “a heartfelt tale full to the brim with warm sentiment and the gentle absurdities of contemporary life. The novel introduces a memorable, utterly unique character in Canadian fiction, and in its author, a singular talent to watch.”
