Giller-winner “The Sentimentalists” Picked Up by Vancouver Publisher


the-sentimentalists-johanna-skibsrudAs detailed by my colleague Scott last week, this year’s Giller winner has been in very high demand since the announcement of its victory, as the small, Nova Scotia-based Gaspereau Press who publishes the book specializes in hand-crafted books, manual production processes and very – very – small, slow print runs.

I know we’ve been unable to keep the book – The Sentimentalists by Johanna Skibsrud – on the virtual shelves at all since it won the $50,000 prize. Fortunately, Gaspereau has now agreed to allow publisher Douglas and MacIntyre to lend a hand. The Vancouver outfit will initially print 30,000 copies, which should be available in stores within a week. Gaspereau will keep lovingly printing the book themselves as well, at their usual rate of approximately 1,000 copies per week.
