Morning Reads: the Triumph of Esi Edugyan and Lauren Wein's New Job

Esi Edugyan has won the Giller Prize, Canada’s top literary award. As we reported earlier this fall, her win comes after having been turned down by U.S. publishers on her first try. Her book, Half-Blood Blues, is now expected to come out early 2012 on Picador.

After 15 years at Grove/Atlantic, editor Lauren Wein has moved over to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Now she grants an interview to Publishing Perspectives.
