Jury Citation

“If only the world were as limitless and magnificent as the one artfully written in Barry Webster's The Lava In My Bones. Lovers swallowing rocks to express their mutual adoration, honey flow instead of sweat—Barry's imagination is relentless and unpredictable, eroding our everyday sensibilities, only to uncover something grander, something sweeter.” -- 2013 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers Jury (Amber Dawn, Anne Fleming, and Vivek Shraya)
