The Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction 2021 Winner
It is our great pleasure to confirm Empire of Pain by Patrick Radden Keefe as the winner of the Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction 2021.
Tracing the story of three generations of the Sackler dynasty, the bestselling author of Say Nothing turns his attention to the family responsible for making and marketing the highly addictive painkiller OxyContin which caused the opioid epidemic that has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans. Shocking, lucid and mercilessly incisive, Empire of Pain is a masterpiece of investigative reporting that sheds stark light on the way self-delusion, indifference and corruption take root in the world of monstrous wealth.
