As this year's Canada Reads is focussed on non-fiction I decided to pick up previous Giller Prize winners and finalists. This is how I stumbled upon the novel I am currently reading - The Free World by David Bezmozgis. I am about halfway through and am thoroughly enjoying it. I would highly recommend picking this one up.
Prior to this I read Freedom by Jonathan Franzen. This was recommended by a friend and I would recommend it as well. Perhaps I'll be better keeping track in 2012!
