The 2022 Scotiabank Giller Prize Longlist

“As the world roils and rolls on in this strange new decade, the 2022 Scotiabank Giller Prize jury can report that Canadian fiction is only becoming more bountiful, energetic, meaningful, funny, and moving. The jury’s discussions and debates throughout the year were nuanced and spirited, but most of all we were continuously in awe of the cornucopia presented to us. We are proud to showcase a longlist of fourteen outstanding titles that are sweeping in scope, touch all corners of life, and which provide pleasure and stimulation as well as urgency and depth. To the nominated authors, it is our delight and honour to say: Congratulations, and thank you.”

“I should have known better but I can’t believe the reach. I’ve had Egyptian cabinet ministers trying to get in touch with me all week. It really is a life-changing thing. Thank you again for everything you do to make this award happen. I owe you a debt I can’t ever repay, as does Canadian literature.”
