There is, of course, plenty of Scotiabank Giller shortlist coverage in today’s papers. The National Post weighs in with betting odds on the five nominees, ranging from 2-1 for favourite Lisa Moore to 75-1 for dark horse Edeet Ravel. And Toronto Star columnist Martin Knelman has his own rundown of the list. But publishing folk across the land must have choked on this sentence of Knelman’s: “And no publishing company has more than one book in the running.” Er, imprint, shurely?
Update: The sentence in question has now been changed on the Star website to read, “Random House of Canada Ltd. has three books, under its imprints Knopf Canada, Doubleday Canada and Random House Canada, in the running.”
