McGILL ENGLISH GRAD WINS GILLER PRIZE

Mon, 2014-12-15 12:37

by Daniel McCabe, BA’89

Do a Google image search of author Sean Michaels, BA’04, the winner of the 2014 Scotiabank Giller Prize, and you’ll notice something straight away – at least in the photos that don’t feature burly pro wrestler Shawn Michaels. Sean, the Montreal-based author, looks like an unassuming guy who is at his most comfortable rocking a hoodie. Not the sort of fellow who typically turns up at a swanky soirée.
