Tesson wins the Dolman prize

Consolations of the Forest by Sylvain Tesson, his account of six months spent in a log cabin in Siberia well stocked with reading and vodka, won the Dolman Travel Book Award last night. It’s a wonderful book that’s simultaneously about withdrawing from society and savouring life. You can still read an extract on Deskbound Traveller; for a little more about the author, see my piece for Telegraph Travel.
