2012 Scotiabank Giller Prize – Longlist

Giller Prize LogoMy favourite time of the year has rolled around once again with the start of the Canadian literary award season.  First up we have a longlist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize:

Also, CBC has announced the winner in the 2012 Reader’s Choice Award.  The public was invited to vote on their favourites from a list of books that were eligible for the Giller Prize and the winner is…..

Peggy Blair for her novel The Beggar’s Opera

I should, of course, mention that currently we have copies of all of the nominated books.  My apologies for the delay in posting the list, but happily that means we are now only a couple of weeks away from the shortlist on October 1st

Personally, I’m holding out for the 1st to try and make any kind of predictions as they will inevitably be completely wrong anyways!  Feel free to let me know if you have any strong opinions or guesses as to which wonderful book will take home the prize.

And of course, congratulations to all the nominees!!
