Minister Without Portfolio

Michael Winter

Minister Without Portfolio

Longlisted for the 2013 Scotiabank Giller Prize, Minister Without Portfolio examines the lengths people will go to for a fresh start. As he struggles to get back on his feet following a difficult breakup, a St. John's man travels to Afghanistan as a civilian contractor, then to Alberta for a dangerous job in the oil field and finally back to Newfoundland, where he has a chance to build a home.

Minister Without Portfolio is being defended by Adam Copeland on Canada Reads 2016.

Excerpt:

We live individual lives with the consciousness of death and awareness of the past. But the most important part of that sentence is the individual part. Let yourself be humbled by the experiences people have been having for thousands of years. And speak of it.
