L'auteur de fantasy humoristique le plus connu du monde vient de recevoir le Los Angeles Times Award pour son roman Nation. Un prix remporté dans la catégorie "Jeunesse". (Neil Gaiman était également nominé).
Et apparemment, il a fait rire tout le monde :
"Leading for humor was Terry Pratchett, who accepted his prize for young adult novel by video. The tape showed Pratchett leaning back in a chair, books to one side and a stiff, somewhat cranky cat on the other. Pratchett occasionally directed his remarks to the cat, which perched on Pratchett's desk, eventually turning to face the camera as if the award were its own. The audience's laughter prompted master of ceremonies David L. Ulin to quip, "I wish I had a cat."" L'article
