It’s participation time. With the Scotiabank Giller Prize coming up in less than a week, we’d like to ask our readers (a) which book should win the prize, (b) which one will win, and what the hell, (c) which book should be in the running but isn’t.
You can weigh in on the comments field – and if you’re worried about offending some author/friend/colleague, remember that our blog allows for anonymous comments. Or you can pick a pseudonym like “Darth Reader.”
And here’s a reminder as to the five Giller nominees:
- Late Nights on Air by Elizabeth Hay (M&S)
- Divisadero by Michael Ondaatje (M&S)
- A Secret Between Us by Daniel Poliquin; Donald Winkler, trans. (D&M)
- Effigy by Alissa York (Random House Canada)
- The Assassin’s Song by M.G. Vassanji (Doubleday Canada)
