Already critically-acclaimed author Madeleine Thien could land another windfall when the Scotiabank Giller Prize is awarded tonight.

The Vancouver-born, Montreal-based writer is up for the $100,000 honour for “Do Not Say We Have Nothing.” The top-selling novel recently won a $25,000 Governor General’s Literary Award and was a finalist for the Man Booker Prize.

Other Giller finalists this year include Ontario-based Emma Donoghue for “The Wonder”, Montreal-born author Mona Awad for “13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl,” which won a $40,000 Amazon.ca First Novel Award in May and Hamilton based writer Gary Barwin made the cut for his book “Yiddish for Pirates”.
