Hoffer Award Winner

Mike was named one of 2016’s select debut authors by the Eric Hoffer Book Awards for his debut book, The Havana Papers, which also received the award for best non-fiction eBook. The US Review of Books calls The Havana Papers, “intriguing, twisting, and often quite beautifully detailed and picturesque verbal photo essay of a society withering under an old regime with bygone ideals, misplaced hopes, and amplified fears that provide a rich foreground and backdrop for the narrator’s wandering soul.”

The First Horizon Award is given to superior work by debut authors. Read more about the Hoffer Awards and the Havana Papers on Laurier’s English and Film Studies blog.
