Terry Fallis is up for the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour – again.
Fallis has won twice before – and has been named to the short list for the 2016 prize for his fifth novel, “Poles Apart” (McClelland &  Stewart)

The Toronto novelist took the Leacock last year for “No Relation.”

He first won the award in 2008 – for his political satire “The Best Laid Plans,” – which was made into a television miniseries.

Also on the short list is Nanaimo, B.C.- based author Susan Juby for “Republic of Dirt” (HarperCollins)

And Dartmouth, Nova Scotia’s Sarah Mian rounds out the short list – for her debut novel “When The Saints” (HarperCollins)

The Leacock Medal is awarded each year for the best book of Canadian literary humour.

The award comes with a $15,000 prize from TD Financial Group.
