Johanna Skibsrud's debut novel The Sentimentalists has just won Canada's most prestigious fiction award, the $50,000 Scotiabank Giller Prize for 2010. Her publisher Gaspereau Press, because of its commitment to artisanal quality, will have a hard time keeping up with demand. And, as most book publishers, Gaspereau will enjoy having that problem.
