Paperboy wins Green Carnation Award

Christopher Fowler’s memoir about life growing up in postwar Britain, Paperboy, has won the inaugural Green Carnation prize.

Chair of judges, writer Paul Magrs said “It’s a great wodge of social history – of  back-to-back houses, plasticine models and exercise books, and how Lois Lane’s adventures were always more interesting than Superman’s. It’s modest, funny and brilliant.”
