NEIL GAIMAN ON HIS BIG WIN
The Bookman carried this story earlier today, here is Neil posting on his much-visited website about his great success:
"Anything I say about it would sound like bragging, so I'll just mention that The Graveyard Book won the Booktrust Teenage Prize, and leave it at that. I couldn't be there, so Chris Riddell accepted it on my behalf, and read out what I'd asked him to read. (The Booktrust site has an interview with me about it here.)
There's a terrific article/interview in the Guardian about it (I even like the photo, even though I cannot explain the hair) at
Well done Neil. See you in Wellington, NZ in 2010.
