Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize

for Inside

Jury Citation

“Intricate, involving, and inspiring are all words that can be used to describe Alix Ohlin’s new novel, Inside. Ohlin has managed to show her readers the frailty and strength of her characters: a therapist, a runaway actress, and a grade six teacher who has become a single mom. Over a 10-year period, they wander in and out of each other’s lives looking for whatever they can find, often realizing it’s something they can’t name. Deep and emotional, Ohlin’s novel shows us how coincidental and complicated life can be. A truly rewarding journey.” — 2012 Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize Jury (Lynn Coady, Esi Edugyan, and Drew Hayden Taylor)
