Aravind Adiga sacks his literary agent

October 28, 2008

by Suzan Abrams

The 2008 Man Booker Prize winner Aravind Adiga has mysteriously and suddenly parted ways with his famed literary agent, the William Morris Agency. The agency's offices in America, known also for its representation of motion picture actors and other personnel in showbiz where it matters, has just received a letter of termination from Adiga with a view to no longer representing the author in the future, although it will still take care of book rights for The White Tiger. Considered a major player in the world, William Morris runs principal offices in New York, Beverly Hills, Nashville, Miami Beach, London and Shanghai. No one at this stage, appears to know the reason for Adiga's decision. The novelist has also failed to turn up for major interviews in London in recent days, following his prestigious Man Booker Prize win.
