Steven Galloway

Steven Galloway is a Canadian writer, born in Vancouver B.C. in 1975.  (So young!)  He now lives in New Westminster.  He has written four novels, one of which I am going to read shortly, as the G-Book for my CanLit Project.

Finnie Walsh (2000) – shortlisted for the First Novel Award

Ascension (2003) – shortlisted for the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize

The Cellist of Sarajevo (2008) – shortlisted for the Ethel Wilson Fiction Award and winner of the Evergreen Award.  Also on the Canada Reads Top 40 for 2014.

The Confabulist (2014) – will be released April 29, 2014

I am going to read The Cellist of Sarajevo, because that is the one I own, but really all of these sound good to me.  After reading about them on Goodreads, I would be interested in reading them all.  Has anyone read anything by Steven Galloway?

    The Cellist of Sarajevo is on my list as well! I will be looking forward to your thoughts about it. 🙂

    I really like your Canadian literature project. I had no idea that Steven Galloway was from Canada. The Cellist of Sarajevo is on my list for this year, so I’m glad that the book is getting positive feedback here.

      My project has been fun! I’ve found several Canadian authors in the last few months that I either didn’t know about, or that I didn’t realize were Canadian. I love going through all the authors for each letter and choosing one, although there are so many good ones that it’s sometimes hard to choose just one.

    You are right – so young! and so accomplished. I have not heard of this writer. Thanks for introducing him. I’ll be curious to read your first review of his books!

    I haven’t read anything by Steven Galloway. The Toronto Public Library has picked The Cellist of Sarajevo has the city-wide read for April. They have travelling cellists appearing all across the city. I was going to participate in the event, but have too many books to juggle (Madame Bovary, for instance).
