Let’s hear it once again for contributing editor Madeleine Thien! Last night, she took home the Scotiabank Giller Prize for her beautiful novel Do Not Say We Have Nothing. The novel was also a finalist for the Man Booker Prize and won the Governor General’s Literary Award for English-language fiction. In her Giller speech, Thien thanks, among other people, her mother. Her Brick 95 piece about reading her mother’s favourite book is a moving tribute.
