2011 Giller longlist a wide open field

A sure sign the fall literary season is underway, the Scotiabank Giller Prize has announced its first round of nominees for 2011. The 17-title longlist “ the largest since the prize began announcing it in 2006 “ pits newcomers (Edugyan, deWitt, Bezmozgis) against a past Giller winner (Ondaatje) and former nominees (Vanderhaeghe, Johnston, Endicott):

HarperCollins Canada and Random House of Canada lead the nominations with three apiece; House of Anansi Press and McClelland & Stewart each has multiple nominations as well.
