OUR DAILY BREAD named one of the "Best of 2011" by the Globe & Mail

I’m absolutely thrilled to pass on the news that OUR DAILY BREAD has been named one of the best books of 2011 by The Globe & Mail.  I’m in pretty heady company, with Christoper Ondaatje, Elizabeth Hay, David Bezmozgis, Antanas Seleika and others.

Thanks to everyone who believed in this book when others said it would fail.  You know who you are! I’m immensely grateful.

There’s an awful lot of rejection and criticism in the writer’s life, so I try and savor the good bits.  Thus, embarrassingly, I admit this is pretty much how I feel right now:

    hi Lauren, Congralations on this great news! I just read the interview you did which was published in the Echo Newspaper this week. I loved the insights on your writing process and what your influences were when writing Our Daily Bread. I’ve ordered the book and can’t wait to get into it.. Wishing you much continued success.
