We're absolutely delighted for Biteback author John Nicholson who has been longlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year award for his fantastic We Ate All the Pies!

"Fit to grace the shelves of any sporting library", We Ate All the Pies joins twelve other sporting books (chosen from a staggering 130) on the longlist to contend for the world's longest established and most valuable literary sports-writing prize.

The shortlist will be announced on 26th October with the winner announced at a lunchtime reception at Waterstone’s Piccadilly (London), Europe’s largest bookstore, on Tuesday 30th November.

We posted an exclusive extract from We Ate All the Pies but why not read it in its full glory and buy it now.
