RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers

for Kingdom Come

Jury Citation

“Touching, frequently hilarious, and sparkling with lucid description, ‘Kingdom Come’ is a story about the brittleness and resilience of desire. Although it centers on an ill medical worker and her elderly patient, both trying to make sense of their own wants and fears, the narrative never slips into melodrama. Instead, the author’s sharp prose renders a perfectly paced story, its setting deeply memorable and its characters plainly, wonderfully human.” — 2018 RBC Bronwen Wallace Award Jury (Martha Baillie, Omar El Akkad, and Ayelet Tsabari)
