This year’s Giller Prize winner is The Sentimentalists by Johanna Skibsrud! That was my second choice after Light Lifting by Alexander MacLeod. Certainly, The Sentimentalists is the best produced book on the shortlist — and, up to now, the hardest to come by. Apparently a few weeks ago I could have sold my used copy for nearly $200. I wonder what people would pay now . . . Not that it’s for sale.

Congratulations!
