Macfarlane wins Wainwright Prize

The Wainwright Prize, an annual award of £5,000 for the best book of nature/UK-based travel writing, went yesterday to Robert Macfarlane for Underland (Hamish Hamilton), his “deep time” journey into the world beneath our feet. The author said he would be donating £1,000 of his prize to The Willowherb Review, “which publishes and celebrates diverse voices in nature writing”.

  I talked to Macfarlane about Underland earlier this year; you can read the interview here on Deskbound Traveller.
