Jury Citation

“Vivek Shraya tackles big ideas of identity, desire, love, and otherness to create unique and evocative explorations of sexuality and belonging. The poignant stories in God Loves Hair and the compelling mashup of a coming of age tale and Hindu mythology that is She of the Mountains prove Shraya to be a welcome new talent.” -- 2015 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers Jury (Nancy Cullen, Brett Josef Grubisic, and Anand Mahadevan)
