Esi Edugyan: The author on winning her second Gi

The Scotiabank Giller Prize is one of the most prestigious literary awards in Canada. Last night in Toronto, Victoria-based author Esi Edugyan was announced as the winner of the $100,000 prize for her novel Washington Black. Remarkably, this is not her first time taking the honour. Her 2011 novel Half-Blood Blues also won the prize, which makes Edugyan the third author to win the Giller Prize twice. She joins guest host Saroja Coelho to talk about her big win.
