BBC national short story award goes to KJ Orr

KJ Orr, whose first collection was published this year, has seen off the likes of two-time Man Booker prize winner Hilary Mantel and the poet Lavinia Greenlaw to win the BBC national short story award.

Described by author and judge Kei Miller, as "a near perfect example of how the short story works – a small world that's perfectly observed", Orr's story Disappearances won the £15,000 prize at a ceremony at BBC's Broadcasting House on Tuesday night. Guardian
