Shortlist revealed for Dolman Travel Book of the Year

28th May 2010

The shortlist for the Dolman Travel Book of the Year has been unveiled today.

William Blacker's Along the Enchanted Way, Tequila Oil: Getting Lost in Mexico by Hugh Thomson and Matthew Engel's Eleven Minutes Late are among the works competing for the award's GBP 2,500 prize.

They are joined on the shortlist by Lost and Found in Russia by Susan Richards, Daniel Metcalfe's Out of Steppe, A Single Swallow by Horatio Clare and Ian Thomson's The Dead Yard .

'With a record number of over 70 submitted titles published in 2009, it has been a particularly strong year for travel literature,' the prize's organisers commented.

The winner of the prize, which is run by the Authors' Club, will be named on July 6th. Last year, the award was handed to debut author Alice Albinia for Empires of the Indus: The Story of a River.

Earlier this week, Thomson's The Dead Yard won the prestigious Ondaatje Prize, which seeks to recognise books which best evoke the spirit of a place.
