Award History

Jury Citation

“Since his very first book Rohinton Mistry has entertained and challenged readers through an unfolding world as complete as any in the journey of modern fiction. Few writers have shown greater love for their characters or greater understanding of their tragic-comic universe. He has an infectious passion for distilling human feeling, with an uncomplicated and abiding sense of both the goodness and the ironic frailty of the human heart. Without a doubt, Mistry has written some of the finest books of our time.”
— 2005 Timothy Findley Award Jury (David Adams Richards, Merilyn Simonds, and Guy Vanderhaeghe)
