Boyden Wins The Giller
Posted by: Courtney Jones

After what his fans considered to be a snub of his first novel (Three Day Road), Joseph Boyden won The Scotiabank Giller Prize last night. The trophy and a $50,000 Canadian cash prize for his second novel, Through Black Spruce, more than make up for any hurt feelings.

Boyden is not the only winner. The other four runners up received $5,000 each. Not bad, ay?
