Catherine Hernandez's favourite book of 2017 was The Clothesline Swing by Ahmad Danny Ramadan
Happy holidays! CBC Books asked authors to share their favourite Canadian books of 2017. We will be publishing these recommendations throughout December.
Author Catherine Hernandez chose The Clothesline Swing by Ahmad Danny Ramadan.
"As a proud queer brown woman, my absolute favourite book this year is The Clothesline Swing by Ahmad Danny Ramadan. In brushstrokes both painful and magical, Ramadan paints a portrait of queer intimacy in the face of war. Ramadan is a brave new voice in Canadian literature declaring to his readers that the way we love is resistance."
