David Bergen wins the 2005 Giller Prize

The Giller Prize is dedicated to celebrating the best in Canadian fiction each year.

Cirtics called The Time In Between - ”Luminous, haunting, profound,... A beautifully composed, unflinching and harrowing story. Perhaps the best fiction yet to confront and comprehend the legacy of Vietnam.” (Kirkus starred review)

David Bergen is the author of three highly acclaimed novels: A Year of Lesser, a New York Times Notable Book; See the Child; and, most recently, The Case of Lena S., winner of the Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award, and a finalist for the Governor General’s Award for Fiction. He lives in Winnipeg.


Is it possible to create a list of the other authors that were short listed for the 2005 Giller award. Something similar to the blog for the Booker site. Thanks

I tried to order the Case of Lena S. for the Library but it is out of print. Alas.

Perhaps there will be a 'bounce' from the Giller and some publisher will re-release it.
