This weekend we plan on announcing the winner of the Shadow Giller. It’s hard to believe that eight weeks ago we were trying to make up our mind as to whether to continue this venture without Kevin, our chairman, at the helm. I’m so glad we did. This year’s books have proved to be sometimes challenging, often daring and always intriguing reads.
While we three jury members — Alison, Naomi and myself — busy ourselves trying to choose which book should win, here are the links to all our reviews, both on this site and our own blogs.
13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl by Mona Awad
Yiddish for Pirates by Gary Barwin
The Wonder by Emma Donoghue
The Party Wall by Catherine Leroux (trs. Lazer Lederhendler)
Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeleine Thien
The Best Kind of People by Zoe Whittall
