Christopher Hitchens longlisted for the Orwell prize

The Orwell Prize describes itself as …Britain’s most prestigious prize for political writing. Every year, we award prizes for the work – the book, the journalism and (since 2009) the blog – which comes closest to George Orwell’s ambition ‘to make political writing into an art’. Christopher Hitchens has been given a posthumous nomination for this year’s award for his essay collection Arguably.

Christopher Hitchens was shortlisted last year for memoir Hitch-22 but eventually lost out to Tom Bingham’s The Rule of Law. The full longlist for this year’s prize is here.

Incidentally, Hitchens’ book Arguably is in the Kindle Spring Sale for £1.99 until 12th April.
