First-Time Novelist Wins Booker

As I reported yesterday, the favourite Aravind Adiga has won this year's Man Booker Prize with his debut novel The White Tiger. The 33-year-old Indian-born writer was also the youngest author on the shortlist. He beat favourite Sebastian Barry to take the £50,000 prize. The other authors were Amitav Ghosh, Steve Toltz, Linda Grant and Philip Hensher. Read the BBC report here.
