but I'll get the shortlist up as soon as it reveals itself.
The Giller list was announced a few days back, and a sort of normalcy has returned.
I was a bit surprised to see Gil Adamson off and Barbara Gowdy on, but I liked Helpless quite a bit, so good on her.
There's been good comments/coverage for several of the lesser known titles on the list. Jessa even noted one of the long shots. In that vein it would be nice if Sharon English made the shortlist (or surprised everyone by winning) because every good small press deserves favour.
I'm pulling for Elizabeth Hay, one because Late Nights on Air is a beauty of a book, two because she's coming to town, and three because she's a class act.
