Ottawa writer Elizabeth Hay wins the Giller Prize
Easily one of the nicest writers around (even nicer than Andrew Pyper, if you can imagine), Ottawa writer Elizabeth Hay won the Scotiabank Giller Prize last night in Toronto, for her third novel, Late Nights on Air (Toronto ON: McClelland & Stewart, 2007). Wonderful, and so well deserved! But does this mean, with two GG nominations sans win (so far), and now a Giller under her belt, I can't call her "GiGi" anymore?
