The Man Booker judges have just announced that the winner for this year's prestigious Man Booker Prize is Aravind Adiga, author of White Tiger. I had the pleasure of reading his book over the summer when it was longlisted ( see review under RWB Fiction category) and I was quite blown away by his story and prose.
