In November the winners of several exciting awards are announced, among them the Canadian Sotiabank Giller Prize and the US National Book Award, and there is no shortage of literary events. But, as is usual in November, the pace of book publishing slows down as the month wears on. We do have new novels from Umberto Eco and John Irving and short story collections from Michael Cunnigham and Stephen King, so we can’t complain.
