2013 Scotiabank Giller Prize


In November Lynn Coady was announced the winner of the 2013 Scotiabank Giller Prize for her short story collection Hellgoing, published by House of Anansi Press.  The eight stories are fast moving, powerful and hold your attention from the first line.  Once the stories end you will revisit them, either in your mind or by re-reading.  I've done both.  Place your hold now because this is a very popular work.

Other finalists for the Scotiabank Giller Prize (and excellent reads available at London Public Library) were:

Dennis Bock for his novel Going Home Again

Craig Davidson for his novel Cataract City

Lisa Moore for her novel Caught

Dan Vyleta for his novel The Crooked Maid
