SHADOWLANDS by Matthew Green is on the longlist for the Wainwright prize

Matthew Green’s ‘haunting’, ‘lyrical’, ‘urgent’ book SHADOWLANDS, about the British cities lost in time, is longlisted for the James Cropper Wainwright Prize for nature writing.

The Prize said: “Named after much-loved nature writer Alfred Wainwright, the aim of the Prize is to inspire everyone to connect with nature and embrace the outdoors. This year’s longlisted books reflect the astonishing range and depth of nature writing, with titles that confront difficult, yet vitally important issues around climate change and food supplies, celebrate the wonder of life in our back gardens, and illuminate the healing power of nature.”
