‘The Sentimentalists’ to be printed in Vancouver

Publisher will alleviate shortage of Giller-winning book


After originally saying no one else would print the book, Gaspereau Press has agreed to allow Douglas & McIntyre of Vancouver to make 30,000 copies of The Sentimentalists. The novel by Johanna Skibsrud was the surprise winner of the Giller Prize, which has sent demand from a few hundred copies to an estimated 60,000 to 80,000 books. Gaspereau, which crafts books by hand, is only able to print 1,000 copies per week. The partnership with Douglas & McIntyre will allow Skibsrud to ride the wave of publicity that surrounds the prize.
