The longlist for the 2012 Giller Prize was announced yesterday. I am ashamed to say I haven’t read any of the books. I was a little surprised not to see Vincent Lam’s The Headmaster’s Wager (which I admit I haven’t read either but my sister assures me is quite good), but it’s always nice to see some new names on the list. The full list is available here. The shortlist will be announced October 1st.
