Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction

for Sixty: A Diary of My Sixty-First Year: The Beginning of the End or the End of the Beginning?

Jury Citation

“Dark, funny, moving, compelling, Ian Brown’s Sixty is his intimate conversation with readers about life, love, regret, aging, and the inevitable changes time brings as he explores his own 61st year. Brown is that rare, brave writer who is willing – and able –not only to dig deeply and honestly into his own psyche, dreams, fears, and fantasies, but then to write about them in ways that are both intensely personal and also wisely universal.” – 2016 Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction Jury (Carolyn Abraham, Stephen Kimber, and Emily Urquhart)
