The Free World by David Bezmozgis
Better Living Through Plastic Explosives by Zsuzsi Gartner
The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt
The Antagonist by Lynn Coady
Half Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan
I am also excited to read Half Blood Blues and The Sisters Brothers. In addition to being shortlisted for the Giller, they are finalists for The Rogers Writer's Trust prize and The Booker Prize. They must be fantastic novels!
Have you read any of the finalists?
