Congratulations!



Congratulations to Esi Edugyan on her Giller Prize win for Half-Blood Blues!!!

This win guarantees the 34-year-old new mother booming sales (on an already best-selling novel) and her place in CanLit history. Less than a year ago Edugyan was searching for a publisher for her book after her first company collapsed. Congratulations to Thomas Allen Publishers for picking up this fantastic novel.

  1. Yay! Wasn't this the one you were hoping would win?

  2. This is the one I picked! First time (out of a few years) that I guessed right!

  3. It's one of those cases where "the story behind the story", with Thomas Allen rescuing the tale from the remnants of Key Porter, is an extra-nice touch. (BTW, I can't see your review of HBB: it displays funny for my reader. Might be just me, but thought I'd mention it just in case it's in your settings.)
