The short list is out for the $25,000 RBC Taylor Prize for non-fiction.

The five books tell personal tales – most of them memoirs.

Among the finalists is former winner Ian Brown of Toronto for “Sixty; The Beginning of the End, or the End of the Beginning?”

And “Stalin’s Daughter” by Toronto’s Rosemary Sullivan is also listed – on the heels of winning the $60,000 Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction – in October.

There’s also “This Is Happy” by Camilla Gibb of Toronto – and “The Reason You Walk” by Wab Kinew of Winnipeg.

Ottawa’s David Halton made the cut for “Dispatches from the Front; The Life of Matthew Halton, Canada’s Voice at War.”

Jury members read 121 books submitted by 39 publishers.
