The Canada Council for the Arts today announced the list of finalists for the 2013 Governor General’s Literary Awards, and The Hungry Ghosts is a nominee in the fiction category. The GGs are awarded in both official languages, in seven categories: fiction, poetry, drama, non-fiction, children’s literature (text and illustration) and translation.
“Get ready for late nights!” said Robert Sirman, Director and CEO of the Canada Council for the Arts. “Great books abound among this year’s GG finalists and you won’t be able to put them down. Further proof of the prolific and potent Canadian literary scene.”
