    Booker winner Adiga denies he sacked his agent

    Mumbai-London (PTI): India's Booker prize winning novelist Aravind Adiga on Sunday rubbished media reports that he had sacked his agent who, it was claimed, had helped the author win the prestigious award. "The story in the British newspaper Telegraph is absolutely incorrect. Initially I had an agent in New York and the relationship between us had ended in November 2007," said 34-year-old Adiga, whose debut book 'The White Tiger', won him the Booker this year.

    Adiga said his relationship with his "principal agent" ended as he thought the author was not making enough money. "I had an agent who was my principle agent and our relationship mutually ended because he thought I was not making money," Adiga told PTI reacting to British media reports. Adiga also objected to claims that the "sacked" agent had helped him with the 50,000 pound award. "The agent has no role in my winning," he said. Adiga said nobody from British press contacted him. 'The Sunday Telegraph' today reported that Adiga had parted company with the William Morris Agency "credited with helping him win the prize". It did not cite any reason.
