I won the prize!

I was shocked and utterly delighted to have won, especially as I am the first woman to have done so in the prize’s 28-year history. It’s received some great media attention, and a lovely new review, so hopefully people will buy my book and learn more about the remarkable people I found living with dramatic change around the planet at this extraordinary time. I will try to post articles about the book and the prize here: today I was talking about it with Professor Brian Cox on the One Show on BBC 1 television, I  spoke to the BBC’s Jon Amos, and I was on the Guardian podcast:

It has been an often gruelling journey, lengthy research and writing project to get here, so I want to thank all the people who have supported the book and this blog over the past few years. You are much appreciated!
