A journalist who interviewed Jimmy Savile extensively over the last six years of his life has won an award for his book about the fallen celebrity.
Dan Davies won the Gordon Burn Prize for his book, In Plain Sight: The Life and Lies of Jimmy Savile.
Actress - and judge - Maxine Peake described it as "compelling".
"This is so much more than a book about the monster that is Savile. It's about grotesque social attitudes towards the famous and money," she said.
The winner was picked from a selected shortlist by a judging panel comprising of Peake, authors Roddy Doyle and Doug Johnstone, artist Gavin Turk and journalist Suzanne Moore.
Davies' book details Savile's secretive life and the author's own developing relationship with the TV presenter over the course of multiple interviews, as well as examining the many inquiries which have followed the discovery that Savile was one of the UK's most prolific sexual predators.
Originally turned down by a slew of publishers prior to Savile's death, because it was deemed too controversial, it was published to critical acclaim last year.
