Shauna Singh Baldwin
Shauna Singh Baldwin’s first novel, What the Body Remembers, was longlisted for the Orange Prize and awarded the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best Book in the Canada/Caribbean region and was translated into 14 languages.
Tiger Claw, her second novel, was a finalist for the Giller Prize in 2004.
"The Selector of Souls is a bold and vivid dramatization of the charged choices shaping women’s lives in 1990s India. Shauna Singh Baldwin has a gift for warm-hearted and incisive storytelling. This is a novel expansive in its vision and defiantly human in its embrace of the contradictions that animate us all."
– Catherine Bush, author of The Rules of Engagement and Claire’s Head
Annabel Lyon’s first novel, The Golden Mean was a #1 bestseller. Finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, the Governor General's Award, the Ethel Wilson Prize, and the Commonwealth
Prize, The Golden Mean won the Rogers Writers' Trust Prize, and was translated into fourteen languages.
"Annabel Lyon is a wonderful writer, adept at breathing life into the ancient past. She reanimates near-mythical characters until we feel we know them intimately—their dreams and desires, their brilliance and their failings—which is an achievement only the finest historical novelists can aspire to. I loved The Golden Mean, and to return to the world of Aristotle and Alexander in The Sweet Girl is a rare pleasure."
– Jane Johnson, author of The Tenth Gift, The Salt Road and The Sultan’s Wife
