Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | Author rejects prize from 'anti-migrant' newspaper

"Peter Wright, editor of the Mail on Sunday, agreed to give the cash to the campaign group, one of the Mail's least favourite charities. He hastily called Mail executives and the prize's judges into a cabal, and they agreed to award the prize again to another writer on the shortlist as soon as possible..."

Sonya Hartnett, shortlisted for the John Llewellyn Rhys award, may still end up with the prize, after the judges' first choice, Hari Kunzru, refused to accept it because of the prize's sponsorship by the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday.
