Michael Redhill has won this year's Scotiabank Giller Prize for his novel, Bellevue Square, a darkly comic tale about a woman who fears for her sanity and her life when she learns that her doppelganger has appeared in a local park — Toronto's Bellevue Square.
The Giller Prize is Canada's richest literary award, with $100,000 given to the winner and $10,000 to each of the finalists, and is awarded annually to the best Canadian novel or short story collection published in English. The award was founded by Toronto businessman Jack Rabinovitch, who named the prize in honour of his wife, the late literary journalist Doris Giller.
The other shortlisted authors for the 2017 prize were Rachel Cusk for her novel Transit; Ed O'Loughlin for his novel Minds of Winter; Eden Robinson for her novel Son of a Trickster; and Michelle Winters for her novel I am a Truck.
So congratulations, Mr. Redhill! For more details about the 2017 Giller Prize, visit their website.Categories: Awards, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Literature

Rachel Joyce is the author of the international bestsellers The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy, and Perfect. She is also the award-winning writer of more than twenty plays for BBC Radio 4.
Her latest novel, The Music Shop, is set in the late 1980s in a small record shop, jam-packed with records. Located down a dead-end street, it attracts the lonely and the sleepless, and one Ilse Brauchmann, whose reasons for visiting the shop are not what they seem.Categories: Authors, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Author of the Month
