Teaser Tuesdays #9 - Giller Prize 2015 Edition (Week2)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (some times you need more than two for it to make sense).
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Week 2 of my Giller Prize feature:

Here is book 2 of 5:

Title: Martin John
Author: Anakana Schofield
Publisher: Biblioasis
Publishing Date: September 15, 2015
Genre: Fiction

What Martin John doesn't tell the doctors, doesn't tell mam, doesn't tell a soulful sinner, wouldn't tell you, except for this Meddler letting you know, is his knowledge Baldy Conscience is after him FULL-TIME, OVERTIME, AND DOUBLE TIME. (p127)

Here's a quick background on the Giller Prize from their website:

"The Giller Prize was founded in 1994 by Jack Rabinovitch in honour of his late wife, literary journalist Doris Giller, who passed away from cancer the year before. The award recognized excellence in Canadian fiction – long format or short stories – and endowed a cash prize annually of $25,000.00, the largest purse for literature in the country."

Is anyone else planning on reading all of the short list nominees before November 10?
