Katherine Rundell shortlisted for Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction 2022
The shortlist for the 2022 Baillie Gifford Prize has been unveiled and Katherine Rundell is on the list with Super-Infinite: The Transformations of John Donne (Faber). Judges said the book succeeds in its two fundamental missions: “It brings the poet to life for the fan of his works, and it makes the person who has yet to discover them want to. Donne’s curiosity about what lies beyond infinity, and his invention of a language to carry him there, makes him a bewitching subject and Rundell captures him brilliantly.”
The winner of the £50,000 prize will be announced on 17th November at the Science Museum, with each runner up receiving £1,000. The prize aims to recognise and reward the best of non-fiction and is open to authors of any nationality.
