CBC Books - The Scotiabank Giller Prize

CBC Books - The Scotiabank Giller Prize

Ayub for Echoes From The Other Land by Ava Homa

Toronto, ON

I believe that Echoes From The Other Land should make to this year's Scotiabank Giller Prize list. This book is fiction, but it tell you so much about real life, particularly the life of women in Iran. For a country like Iran that is closed off and inaccessible to many, Echoes From The Other Land is a window. By awarding this book the Scotiabank prize you will bring attention to stories from thousands of miles away and encourage a writer that has so much more to tell.
