Pangonis joins the four other winners of the award which celebrates works of fiction, non-fiction or poetry by writers under 30.

The judges noted: "This year’s Somerset Maugham Award shortlist was made up of young voices who used poetry, non-fiction, fiction, or other forms entirely, to explore history in unique fashions... We encourage more presses and imprints to submit works next year, to expand the possibilities of this prize."

The award is just one among the Society of Authors’ Awards.
