Here’s the official Giller Prize shortlist for this year:

  • Fifteen Dogs, by Andre Alexis
  • Arvida , by Samuel Archibald
  • Outline, by Rachel Cusk
  • Daydreams of Angels, by Heather O’Neill
  • Martin John, by Anakana Schofield
  • The Shadow Jury doesn’t have much to say about the choice: except for Kim’s reading of Fifteen Dogs (which she didn’t like at all) and Alison’s reading of Outline (which she liked), none of us have read the other three. I’m a bit surprised to see two short story collections, Archibald and O’Neill.

    Now the serious work begins for the Shadow Jury. I’m hoping to get to the entire shortlist.
