The First Novel Award, formerly the Books in Canada First Novel Award, is a Canadian literary award, co-presented by and The Walrus to the best first novel in English published the previous year by a citizen or resident of Canada.[1] It has been awarded since 1976.[1]

The First Novel Award was founded by the literary magazine Books in Canada.[1] Between 1976 and 1994, the award was sponsored by SmithBooks. During this period, the award was known as the SmithBooks/Books in Canada First Novel Award.[1] When SmithBooks was acquired by Chapters, it became the Chapters/Books in Canada First Novel Award.[1]

Etta and Otto and Russell and James: A This “poetic, poignant” (US Weekly) debut features last great adventures, unlikely heroes, and a “sweet, disarming story of lasting love” (The New York Times Book Review).Eighty-three-year-old Etta has never seen the ocean. Owen made fun of Russell during one of the days that Russell was in school instead of Otto. So, the next day, Otto punched Owen to defend Russell. I think that Owen was in love with Otto, which Otto recognized on some level, and 'funny' was a euphemism for explaining homosexuality in the 1940s.
