And The Winner Is...

Nikolski
by: Nicolas Dickner
Defended by: Michel Vézina

Nikolski is a small village in the Aleutian Islands off the shore of Alaska. It is also a thematic link in Nicolas Dickner's charmingly offbeat novel about three young francophones searching for a sense of connection and unaware of the ties that bind them. A beguiling story of chance and the power of coincidence to change lives, Nikolski was first published in French in 2005 and received numerous awards, including Quebec's prestigious Prix Anne-Hébert for best first book.
