The Frumkiss Family Business has appeared in second place in Canadian Living‘s guide to “The 10 best books for the CanLit fan on your list” for the holidays.

Others in the guide include Sandra Birdsell’s Waiting for Joe, Ruth Rakoff’s When My World Was Very Small and Jane Urquart’s Sanctuary Line.

This is wonderful news especially coming right before the International Festival of Authors which begins this Friday 22nd October at the Harbourfront Centre, Toronto. Wex will be reading from The Frumkiss Family Business this coming Sunday 24th October at Lakeside Terrace. He will also be participating in a round table discussion on writing about the family at the Studio Theatre on Saturday 30th October.

If you’re in Toronto we would love to see you at one of these events.
