Farzana
Doctor

Award History

Jury Citation

“With her first novel, Stealing Nasreen, and now her discerning new novel, Six Metres of Pavement, it’s hard to imagine a gentler protestor than Farzana Doctor, but protest she does: racism, sexism, ageism, and homophobia all fall before her gentle yet powerful touch. She is a writer to cherish and reread when we feel the world lacks a moral centre.” -- 2011 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers Jury (Jen Sookfong Lee, Jeffrey Round, and Zoe Whittall)
