Today the Giller Prize shortlist was announced.

  • 419, by Will Ferguson
  • Inside, by Alix Ohlin
  • The Imposter Bride, Nancy Richler
  • Ru, Kim Thúy
  • Whirl Away, Russell Wangersky

Because the Shadow Giller was very unsure about which titles would be on the shortlist, I’ve simply held off reading any up to this point, but now my work begins. The only one I have right now is Inside, so I’ll start there.

I may be a bit off here, but I don’t think these are the titles most of the rest of Shadow Giller would have chosen, and they left off one or two we’ve really enjoyed, like Katrina Onstad’s Everybody Has Everything. Well, soon enough my reviews will start popping up here.
