CBC Books recently had the opportunity to ask the shortlisted authors a few questions about their literary influences and inspirations. Here we have Patrick deWitt, author of The Sisters Brothers.
Which author will win this year's Scotiabank Giller Prize? Find out on November 8. The ceremony will be broadcast live on CBC's bold TV at 9 p.m. ET and again on CBC-TV at 11:05 p.m. CBC Books will be hosting a pre-show live chat at 6 p.m. and will be livestreaming the event.
