A war horse. . .

If you are still basking in the Canadian equestrian team's successes at the Olympics and are in the mood for a horsey read, Our Horses in Egypt by Rosalind Belben has just won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, Britain's oldest literary prize. This has been on my radar for a while as it's a type of Black Beauty in the First World War tale. Which is a different and original take on the conflict.
God's Architect: Pugin and the Building of Romantic Britan by Rosemary Hill won the biography prize.
