About the Author

Michelle Winters is a writer, painter, and translator from Saint John, N.B., living in Toronto. Her written and visual work stretches the limits of the probable, explores the lushness of the industrial, and anthropomorphizes with gay abandon. Her stories have been published in THIS Magazine, Taddle Creek, Dragnet, and Matrix, and she was nominated for the 2011 Journey Prize. I Am a Truck is her debut novel.

Reviews

"Winters does a lot on the page and packs a great deal of charm into this trim, very human little book... Quirky and fun, I Am a Truckfeels like a departure from the typical Giller-nominated fare, and that's a very good thing. Totally at home despite its smaller stature - both in publishing house and page count - this pick lends something fresh and unexpected to the hallowed list." -- Globe and Mail

"I Am a Truck, by New Brunswick writer Michelle Winters, features a Chevy Silverado in a short novel with the feel of a Coen brothers' film...This is a story about driving, freedom, rock 'n' roll and the joys of taking control of your own destiny--and destination." --Toronto Star

"This fast-paced, quirky, heart warming and hilarious novel captures the fast and loose crossovers of language and culture that make southeast New Brunswick unique." - Geist

"Winters is an ace at slyly building tension; after a couple chapters we find ourselves in the middle of a detective story, wrapped in a love story, wrapped in a portrait of a part of French Canada that is unlike any other region in the country." - Matrix Magazine

"Tightly constructed but character-driven, Michelle Winters' I Am a Truck is a remarkably satisfying read. For a jury who clearly appreciates the art of driving off-road, this fresh voice deserved a nod of recognition and it could even snag a spot in the parking lot of the [Giller Prize] shortlist." -- Buried in Print
