Elizabeth Hay was awarded the 2007 Scotiabank Giller Prize last night for her novel Late Nights on Air.

According to the judges--David Bergen, Camilla Gibb and Lorna Goodison--Hay's novel was "in some ways a dazzling virtuoso praise song to Canada and things Canadian, but ultimately, it is a flawlessly crafted and timeless story, masterfully told."

The award was handed out at a black-tie gala in Toronto. The other nominees were Michael Ondaatje for Divisadero, M.G. Vassanji for The Assassin's Song, Alissa York for Effigy, and Daniel Poliquin for A Secret Between Us. The Scotiabank Giller Prize honours the best in Canadian English-language fiction.
