Gruff Rhys has been shortlisted for the Gordon Burn Prize for his book American Interior.

The Super Furry Animals frontman has been nominated alongside five other writers for a £5,000 award for his writings, part of a multimedia project which included an album and a film.

The prize, now in its second year, will be judged by comedian, actor and musician Julian Barratt, poet John Burnside, artist Sarah Lucas and novelist Benjamin Myers, who won the award last year for his book, Pig Iron.

A collaboration between New Writers North, Faber & Faber and the Gordon Burn Trust, the organisers say the Prize is awarded to writers who follow the "fearless footsteps" of Burn, a polymath who wrote on subjects ranging from "serial killers... to contemporary art".

The winner will be announced on October 10, reports The Telegraph.
