Nina Berkhout’s debut adult novel, The Gallery of Lost Species (Anansi, Thomas Dunne/St. Martin’s, Éditions XYZ) was acclaimed by the Toronto Star (“Berkhout does a masterful job”) and the Globe and Mail (“deeply moving”). The novel was named an Indigo and Kobo Best Book and a Harper’s Bazaar Hottest Breakout Novel. Berkhout is also the author of five poetry collections, most recently Elseworlds, which won the Archibald Lampman Award.

The Mosaic

Twyla Jane Lee has one goal. To finish senior year so she can get out of her military hometown of Halo, Montana. But to graduate, she needs to complete forty hours of community service, and that means helping out a rude and reclusive former Marine named Gabriel Finch. Gradually the two misfits form a bond, and Twyla begins to unearth the secrets that have left the Marine battling ghosts.
