The Outrun Bags The Wainwright Prize 2016

It’s our pleasure this afternoon to confirm that Amy Liptrot’s masterful debut The Outrun has clinched this year’s Wainwright Prize.

Last year’s winner, Meadowland by John Lewis-Stempel, stormed to the top of our charts and has established the standard for fine rural writing.
