Jeff Lemire's holiday gift guide

We asked our Canada Reads authors to share what they'll be giving their friends and family this holiday season. Here's hoping it will inspire a few last-minute buys for you and your loved ones!

Today's gift guide was compiled by Essex County author Jeff Lemire.

Jeff Lemire Gift Guide

The fiction book I'm giving is... Kraken by China Miéville. Probably the best genre writer working right now takes a shot at black humour. Great fun and a great read.

The non-fiction book I'm giving is... I don't read non-fiction. The world is too depressing and there are too many good stories to read!

The music I'm giving is... Tegan & Sara's Sainthood of course.

The DVD I'm giving is... Twin Peaks is still my favourite show, but The Wire is a real close second.

My favourite part of the holidays is... Seeing my 21-month-old son experience everything with fresh eyes. The magic returns to the holidays through him!

This holiday season I'll be reading... William Gibson's Zero History.

Drop by tomorrow to see what made Terry Fallis's gift guide!
