Giller Prize-winner hard to find due to limited supply

Nov 12 2010

This week, The Sentimentalists by Johanna Skibsrud won the Giller Prize which honors the best of Canadian writing, but don't expect to find print copies of the book flooding shelves anytime soon - tiny publisher Gaspereau is running at max, hand printing just 1000 copies a week. Unsurprisingly, they are under considerable pressure to find a way to print more copies sometime soon! Meanwhile, if you're desperate to buy it, and don't want to fork out $100+ for a second hand copy, chapters.indigo.ca do have an ebook version available.

Update Nov 15: Gaspeareau Press has made a deal with a larger Canadian house, Douglas and McIntyre Publishers, to make enough copies of The Sentimentalists available to meet the sudden demand winning Canada's biggest fiction prize creates (Publishers Weekly)
