The book that emerged from a surprisingly strong shortlist was The Bishop's Man by investigative journalist Linden MacIntyre. He is indeed younger than Munro (66 to her 78), but my guess is that even had she been on the shortlist, the prize would still have gone to him. For The Bishop's Man is an extraordinary novel, not least because it deals with rather hackneyed subjects (sex scandals involving the Catholic church, questions of faith and Glendinning's abhorred genealogies) without ever becoming a mere vehicle for the exploration of such issues.

Though this book brings me back to Canada, the locale is no more familiar to me than, say, Egypt. And so this reader comes to the end of the Giller shortlist, a journey I much enjoyed, even if some of the stops were not as pleasing as others. After venturing to Egypt, Cambodia, and ancient Macedon for the previous three Giller shortlisted titles, The Bishop’s Man brings us back to Canada, which is a fitting way to end one of Canada’s great literary prizes. I hope I don’t muddle it up by my lack of familiarity).
