Tonight they announced that this year’s winner of the Giller Prize is:
- Hellgoing, by Lynn Coady
I reviewed it here.
As I said in that review, I didn’t really like this short story collection. I much preferred her novel The Antagonist, which was a finalist for the Giller Prize in 2011 (and which I reviewed here).
This year, I put Hellgoing as the fourth out of five (or fifth out of six when you include The Orenda, the book that really should have won prize this year and wasn’t even shortlisted).
