Giller A-listers

The Giller Prize longlist was revealed in mid-September; many of the authors had Atlantic Canadian connections—among them Lynn Coady for her short story collection Hellgoing, (House of Anansi Press), Wayne Grady for his novel Emancipation Day, (Doubleday Canada), Wayne Johnston for The Son of a Certain Woman, (Knopf Canada), Lisa Moore for Caught, (House of Anansi Press), and Michael Winter for Minister Without Portfolio, (Hamish Hamilton Canada). We were particularly thrilled to see that Newfoundland’s Elisabeth de Mariaffi was nominated for her short story collection How To Get Along With Women, published by Nova Scotia’s Invisible Publishing. On October 8, the shortlist was announced, with Lynn Coady and Lisa Moore making it to the final selection. The winner will be announced November 5.
