Award History

Jury Citation

“Bill Gaston is a writer who never aims for the easy mark. With his rare ability to skate the thin ice of the mind’s most subtle moments, he takes readers to places where few other writers go. His memorable stories are propelled by remarkable sentence-by-sentence energy and uncommon writerly nerve. We believe Bill Gaston has crafted an exceptional body of work that deserves to be much better known by those who love the art of lively fiction laced with humour and deep perception.”
— 2002 Timothy Findley Award Jury (William Deverell, George Galt, and Ann Ireland)
