2013 a good year on the page

Their discovery polarizes them. It could buy them a dream life, or it could buy them trouble. This is a richly rendered literary mystery with well wrought characters, and each afflicted with complicated personal strifes.

These same readers should know that Michael's poetry is as accessible and delightfully readable as his fiction.

Unlike his first novel, this one treads into a very unique, taboo rich territory, which serves up an unforgettable cast of characters, most notably the mother son duo of Percy and Penelope. Percy was born with port wine stains covering his face, and with goofily large hands and feet.

The Giller Prize, went to a collection of short stories called "Hellgoing."

In the opening pages of Lundrigan's fifth novel, "The Widow Tree," three young friends stumble on a bag of buried treasure in a cornfield. What they find, while they're supposed to be harvesting corn, is a bag of Roman coins.

Another great collection of shorts this year came from the return of Ed Kavanagh. Ed's new book of shorts is called "Strays," and features "10 memorable stories that explore the lives of those who find themselves adrift."

Lisa's novel, "Caught," is arguably the Canadian book of the year. It was up for two of the country's three major literary awards, and has everything a reader could want: pace, plot, first rate characterization, and Moore's penchant for sizzling sentence level writing.

Alongside the humour is a clean, crisp diction, that'll make you feel for the novel's well crafted characters.

A single poem in this collection packs more punch than most poets can muster in an entire collection. The way he can affect a reader with such casual yet masterfully rendered language is a rare gift.

Many readers who love and rightfully adore Michael Crummey's novels do not seem to know he was a successful poet for years before publishing any fiction.

We see ourselves in many of these poems about youth, love, lust, loss, wonder, and the other things that bond us. And when you're done with Crummey's collection of poetry, try out an equally impressive offering from Carmelita McGrath, called "Escape Velocity." She's one of the province's finest poets, ever, and this collection shines.

It's not long before Henry's dedication to his friend extends beyond caring for this friend's house to caring for his wife as well.

As for the Michaels, Michael Winter's "Minister Without Portfolio" tells the story of a guilt ridden man named Henry as he tries to rebuild his life (and a house in Renews) after a crushing breakup, and the sudden death of a friend he can too easily blame himself for.

Nolan's writing shows remarkable restraint and sophistication; it's a very clean piece of writing.

His new one will please fans who enjoyed Wayne's debut novel, "The Story of Bobby O'Malley." Like his debut, his latest is full of religious satire, and focuses on the everyday familial struggles of a single family in St. John's.

The other great debut of 2013 was Claire Wilkshire's "Maxine." This novel will have you laughing out loud and really rooting for her people.

Speaking of collections, it's been the year of the short story in Canada: Alice Munro won herself a Nobel peace prize, and the country's most glamorous literary award, New Era Arizona Diamondbacks

Like any Michael Winter book, his strength is his style. There is a calculated cadence and flow in these paragraphs that effortlessly seats readers in the story. Essentially, the novel is a character study of a man who's been nicknamed a "Minister without Portfolio." The term's literal meaning is a politician with no specific responsibilities or causes. It was the last thing this friend said to him before dying, and Henry struggles with what it means, what his friend meant, and if it's true.

In terms of local books of short stories, as always, "The Cuffer Prize Anthology" has to make the list of the best books of the year. Its 35 New Era Edmonton Oilers eclectic offerings include the winner of 2012's Cuffer Prize, "Nancy Drew," by Wanda Nolan.

His new collection of poems, "Under the Keel," is first in a decade, and was well worth the wait.

list without mention of some dazzling debuts? This year's most notable non fiction release was firecracker Vicky Murphy's "Motherfumbler."

Most of the humour in this novel stems from the fact the heroine, Maxine, is delightfully neurotic, and placed in some funny awkward scenarios we can all relate to. Maxine's best friend has died, suddenly and unexpectedly, and it's jolted Maxine into wanting change. It is essentially the story of a woman's unexpected friendship with her kid neighbour, and her quest to write a novel (which isn't going so well). Eliot, and so on.

As for Wayne's new novel, it has to be a Canadian record that, since the inception of The Giller Prize, Johnston's New Era Tennessee Titanswashington

What good is a best of Jordan Cap Space Jam

It's the biggest dose of laugh out loud levity written by a modern mom that you'll ever, ever find. Every too true, overly earnest, and delightfully delivered line will shock a smile across your face, in the good way.

Her novel opens with a man escaping from prison, years after his incarceration for the biggest pot smuggling operation in Newfoundland history, and follows this man as he tries to do it all over again. Readers are whisked along on an adventure full of the wild, brazen dreams of youth, complicated love and loose morals.

This is the kind of poetry you nod your head at while you read, line after line. These poems will register well with readers of all kinds because he tends to be conversational in his poetry, and that makes it personal, sure, but in a way that makes it very human and universal as well.
