Stagg’s ‘The Crossway’ short-listed for Rathbones Folio Prize

Guy Stagg’s The Crossway (Picador), an account of how he walked from Canterbury to Jerusalem in an attempt to “mend” himself after mental illness, was among eight books short-listed this week for the £30,000 Rathbones Folio Prize (for “works of literature in which the subjects being explored achieve their most perfect and thrilling expression”). Also short-listed was Mary Ann Sate, Imbecile by Alice Jolly (Unbound), which, in common with The Crossway, has been long-listed for the RSL Ondaatje Prize, for a working “evoking the spirit of a place”.
