Congratulations to the brilliant Owen Matthews, whose latest book Overreach has been shortlisted for the 2022 Parliamentary Book Awards in the Best Political Book by a Non-Parliamentarian category. Fellow nominees include What Just Happened?! by Marina Hyde, Ghost Signs by Stu Hennigan, and The Fall of Boris Johnson by Sebastian Payne.
Based on Owen’s incredible contacts in the Kremlin and first-hand reporting from the battle frontlines, Overreach is an authoritative, unmissable record of a conflict that shocked Europe to its core.
