The non-fiction awards

The annual RBC Taylor Prize for literary non-fiction goes to the “Canadian author whose book best demonstrates a superb command of the English language, an elegance of style and a subtlety of thought and perception.”

This year’s winner is Plum Johnson for They Left Us Everything.

The finalists are David O’Keefe’s One Day in August: The Untold Story Behind Canada’s Tragedy at Dieppe; Barbara Taylor’s The Last Asylum: A Memoir of Madness in our Times; M. G. Vassanji’s And Home Was Kariakoo: A Memoir of East Africa; and Kathleen Winter’s Boundless.

Meanwhile, Joseph Heath’s book Enlightenment 2.0: Restoring Sanity to Our Politics, Our Economy, And Our Lives won the Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing this week.
