Jury Citation 

A concise jewel weaving in and out of time, jia qing wilson-yang’s Small Beauty is a gorgeous debut. Following the story of Mei, a mixed race transwoman of Chinese descent, the novel traces her troubled life from urban Ontario to the small town where much of her family has died. In lyrical prose, wilson-yang questions and meditates on racism and transphobia with searing humour and quiet, ethereal interiority.
