Introducing Western Living’s 2023 Designers of the Year Award Winners
Michael Harris' The End of Absence has been nominated as one of the four finalists for the Governor General's Award for non-fiction.
Here at WL, we’ve worked closely with Michael Harris. He was the editor of WL Condo for a spell, an editor at WL as well and he’s been writing stories for us like this one on a cool guest house, this one on a luxe Whistler pad or this one on a amazing cliffside abode for a long while. So when we published his new book, The End of Absence earlier this year we were justifiably proud, but a risk of being braggarts we kept it to ourselves. But this week the book was announced as one of the four finalists for the Governor General’s Award for non-fiction and we just couldn’t keep it to ourselves. The book is a treatise (but a page-turning type of treatise) on the online world and how it’s arrival has fundamentally changed our approach to, well, everything. It really is a great read, written by a great author and someone we’re proud to call a colleague and a friend.
