Man-Booker prize winner

Links on Tell Me a Story


Well done!

A first-time novelist from India, Aravind Adiga, won the Booker Prize last night with the novel ‘The White Tiger’, which was commended by the judges for portraying the "dark side of India". It was compared to Shakespeare's Macbeth "with a twist".

Début novel

Adiga, 33, was one of the youngest authors in the 40 years of the competition to win the £50,000 prize. He was also the second writer from India to win with a début novel.

I can only imagine what an emotive affair it must have been. Congratulations.
