Dolman prize longlist is unveiled

13th May 2011

The longlist for the 2011 Dolman Best Travel Book Award has been announced, with ten titles in contention for the prize.

These include The Edge of Physics by Anil Ananthaswamy, All Kinds of Magic by Piers Moore Ede and Michael Jacobs' Andes.

Drinking Arak Off an Ayatollah's Beard by Nicholas Jubber, Tim Llewellen's Spirit of the Phoenix and Molotov's Magic Lantern by Rachel Polonsky are among the other travel books in contention for the prize.

The list is completed by Last Resort: A Memoir of Zimbabwe by Douglas Rogers, Dreaming in Hindi by Katherine Russell Rich, Graham Robb's Parisians and Germania by Simon Winder.

A shortlist will be announced on June 9th, with the winner named at a ceremony on July 6th.

Last year's GBP 2,500 Dolman prize was won by Ian Thomson for The Dead Yard, an insight into modern day Jamaica described by the judging panel as 'a beautifully written and very rich account of a distant place'.
