An unexpected honour

Fishing in Utopia, already entered for the Oondatje Prize, has just to my astonishment been long-listed for the Orwell prize for political writing. Given that the other candidates include Patrick Cockburn, Ahmed Rashid, Phillipe Sands and Tony Judt I don’t think for a moment that I am going to win. But it would be lovely to make the shortlist, and in any case, even the longlist is a completely unexpected treat.
