Looking ahead to the best new books of 2014


2013 was a big year for Canadian writers: Alice Munro took home the Nobel Prize in Literature, while Canadian-born author Eleanor Catton nabbed the Man Booker prize for her novel The Luminaries. And of course 2013 saw some huge releases with Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam , Joseph Boyden's The Orenda and Ruth Ozeki's A Tale for the Time Being.

And as 2014 begins, it's time to look forward. This year will see a lot of major titles in Canadian literature; here are five to get excited about in the next six months.
