The 2017 Giller Prize Winner


Congratulations to Michael Redhill whose novel Bellevue Square was named the winner of the 2017 Giller Prize last night.

And, as many of you probably already know, Bellevue Square was also the winner of the 2017 Shadow Giller. If you’re interested in finding out how we came to our decision, you can read about it here.

To see a replay of the Giller event, as well as a video of Michael Redhill’s speech visit CBC Books.


That’s the end of the Giller Prize season for another year. We hope you’ve enjoyed following our Shadow Giller proceedings, reviews and tweets over the past two months. We’ve had a brilliant time doing it and read some wonderful books in the process. Thanks so much for your support! See you next year.

    I’ll second the thanks, it’s great to still have a place where we can explore insightful reviews about the shortlist.
    And best wishes to Mrs KfC, be assured that Kevin is not forgotten, not during the Giller season nor at any other time. I miss him heaps.
