Short Story, Big Prize

One had written earlier about the National Short Story Prize, the richest ever for the short story form. Well, the winner has been declared, and it's not William Trevor, Rana Dasgupta or Rose Tremain, who were among those on the shortlist. Instead, relatively lesser-known writer James Lasdun takes the palm for his tale, 'The Anxious Man', about a man struggling with financial worries while on a family holiday. Sounds like the story of one's own life, that.
