The Argus On Local Author's Funny Prize Win

Brighton's regional newspaper, The Argus, covers local writer's surprise win of the 2012 Roald Dahl Funny Prize.

As Jamie Thomson believably says:

"I really didn't expect to win. It feels really good.

"I thought, 'Great, I've been nominated', but I thought I'd no chance of winning when I saw the actual shortlist. I was comparing all the reviews they'd had on Amazon and things like that."

He added: "I couldn't believe it at first, but then ... it's wonderful. I'm sure it hasn't really sunk in, I suppose."
