Trillium Book Awards Author Reading 2015

Rawi Hage and the IMPAC, plus some Giller things

Share |

As you've probably heard, Montrealer Rawi Hage won the Dublin IMPAC for his first novel, De Niro's Game (House of Anansi Press).

It's an astonishing and deserved win. Congratulations, Rawi.

Read a profile of Hage from the new issue of Quill & Quire (shameless day-job plug) here.

For more Hage-related reading, feel free to go waaayy back to 2006 for a discussion of the Giller Prize that year. (Hage was nominated, but lost out to Vincent Lam.)

And if that whets your appetite for lengthy Giller diatribes, then read this essay by Alex Good.
