Lovers of literature won’t want to miss two-time Giller Prize winner M. G. Vassanji. The author of such novels as The In-Between World of Vikram Lall, The Gunny Sack, and The Book of Secrets has also won a Commonwealth Prize and a Governor General’s Literary Award for nonfiction. It’s all the more remarkable when you consider that the Kenyan-born writer specialized in nuclear physics before moving to Canada in 1978.
