The Giller Prize

The Giller Prize is allegedly the Canadian equivalent of the Booker, and it has been getting some attention from the blogosphere.

David Bergen won for his novel The Time in Between, which is a story about a brother and sister who travel to Southeast Asia to look for their father, a Vietnam veteran who has disappeared there.

The Bookslut reckons that one advantage of the Giller Prize ceremony over the American National Book Awards is that, at the former, 'you can totally smoke weed there.'

On the other hand, you could just stay at home and smoke weed anyway.
