Ian Williams wins 2019 Giller Prize

Tuesday, Nov 19, 2019 at 11:29am

The winner of this year's Scotiabank Giller Prize, the richest Canadian literary award that comes with a $100,000 prize, is Ian Williams.

Williams won for his debut novel Reproduction, the charming and surprising tale of Felicia and Edgar and the bizarre ways people become bonded, a story that insists family isn't a matter of blood.

Congratulations, Mr. Williams! A prestigious award to set off his career in fiction, one we shall watch with great interest.
