Why did antarticsunset choose these five titles? She explains below:
"I think these books best express an exceptional creativity and originality in terms of the plot and the storytelling, as well as a beautiful expressiveness in the way the stories are told. They best portray the highest level of art and the craft of writing and embody the best in literature that Canada has to offer."
