Imlah's The Lost Leader, which portrays Scottish culture from classical mythology to a Dumfries bus depot, is in the running for the £15,000 prize alongside nine other poetry collections. Imlah was the unanimous choice for the £10,000 Forward prize judges, who described his collection as "quite brilliant".
