“The award will be unveiled in the Sunday Times this weekend. It was suspended in 2008, but Holgate said he had long wanted to resurrect the prize: “There was some trimming going on back then [because of the recession] so we suspended it, but ever since I’ve always wanted to re-start it. The prize was always low-key, but when I talked to previous winners I was amazed how much difference it had made. They felt great loyalty to the prize. We want to use that heritage to do more of the same, but with more energy.” ”

Announced in the Bookseller 8 May 2015
