The Salt Path, a memoir by Raynor Winn, was published in January this year, and it’s now out in paperback. It was shortlisted for a Costa Book Award and, in May 2019, it won the first ever Royal Society of Literature Christopher Bland Prize set up to encourage the work of older writers – awarded annually to an author who was first published when aged 50 or over.
