Giller Prize Shortlist

I don't normally post twice in one day but I forgot today was Giller Prize shortlist day. YAY!

Unfortunately the name I wanted to see on the list isn't. And no, I'm not talking about Atwood. But can we say,wow it's a shocker that she didn't make it??? No, even though I hadn't read it I was rooting for Claire Holden Rothman's The Heart Specialist. Should have known that would knock her out. I suck at picking winners.

Here's the shortlist:

  • Linden MacIntyre – The Bishop’s Man

  • Kim Echlin – The Disappeared

  • Colin McAdam – Fall

  • Anne Michaels – The Winter Vault

  • Annabel Lyon – The Golden Mean

What do you think? Good shortlist?
