William Hill Sports Book of the Year longlist unveiled

29th September 2010

The 13-strong longlist for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award - the world's richest sports writing prize - has been confirmed.

Andre Agassi's Open: An Autobiography, Beware of the Dog: Rugby's Hard Man Reveals All by Brian Moore and Blood, Sweat and Treason by Henry Olonga are among the sporting and biography books competing for the award, which carries a GBP 22,000 cash prize and a GBP 2,000 bet with William Hill.

Other titles in the running for the prize include A Last English Summer by Duncan Hamilton, Bob Mee's Liston & Ali: The Ugly Bear and the Boy Who Would Be King, Blood Knots by Luke Jennings and John Nicholson's We Ate All The Pies.

William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe said: 'From a staggering number of entries - over 130 titles - we have produced a longlist of a "Bookies' Dozen" fit to grace the shelves of any sporting library.'

Previous winners of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award include Duncan Hamilton's Harold Larwood: The Biography, Coming Back To Me by Marcus Trescothick and Geoffrey C Ward's Unforgivable Blackness.
