Sir Terry Pratchett wins pig prize

 

The prize, a Gloucestershire Old Spot pig, goes to all winners, and is inspired by the pigs kept by one of P.G. Wodehouse’s memorable characters; Lord Emsworth.

By tradition, the pig is named after the winning novel, in this case Snuff. Pratchett spent some time with Snuff at the Hay Festival. Sir Terry Pratchett is the well-known author of the Discworld series of lighthearted comic fantasy novels.
