“Tomorrow’s shortlists for the Giller and the Governor General’s prizes invariably start with today’s Journey Prize Stories.” — Globe and Mail
“The Journey Prize anthology has become the proving ground for new, young Canadian writers, a who’s who of the coming generation. . . . There’s nothing else like it in Canada. . . . I, for one, owe everything to the Journey Prize.” — Yann Martel, previous Journey Prize winner and the author of the Booker Prize-winning novel Life of Pi

I bought this collection on the strength of the judges. I knew such talented writers would chose excellent stories and indeed they have. This is an eclectic mix of modern literary fiction short stories. Really worth a purchase and a read. Looking forward to reading more from all of them.
