A fictional book about John Lennon has won the Goldsmiths Prize.

Kevin Barry's Beatlebone is described as a novel "that takes its reader to the edge - of the Western world, of sanity, of fame, of words".

His novel is set in Dorinish, an uninhabited island off the Irish coast, which Lennon bought in 1967 for £1,700.

Set in 1978, it follows the former Beatle as he visits the island to attend a course of primal scream therapy.
