Awards from Canada & Great Britain

Linden MacIntyre's The Bishop's Man, which "chronicles the emerging crisis of conscience in a worldly priest who has been assigned to keep a lid on church-related sex scandals that are destroying the lives of the faithful in rural Cape Breton," won the 2009 Giller Prize, Canada's premier literary prize."

This year's Roald Dahl Funny Prize winners were Grubtown Tales: Stinking Rich and Just Plain Stinky by Philip Ardagh (for ages 7-14) and Mr. Pusskins Best in Show by Sam Lloyd (for ages six and under), the Guardian reported.
