The longlist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize (via CBC), Canada’s highest profile literary award (sorry G-G’s), was announced this morning. Alongside CanLit stars like Douglas Coupland and Jane Urquhart is Regina writer Dianne Warren, nominated for her debut novel Cool Water, which came out earlier this year. Warren, not to be confused with power ballad queen Diane Warren, is best known for her short stories. Her short story collections Bad Luck Dog and A Reckless Moon are highly recommended.
