Roars of Anger

Interesting interview with Aravind Adiga by the Guardian's Stuart Jeffries here.

The heading itself is enlightening:

Roars of anger

Aravind Adiga's debut novel, The White Tiger, won the Booker prize this week. But its unflattering portrait of India as a society racked by corruption and servitude has caused a storm in his homeland.

Wonder what's upset them?

Adiaga also shows solidarity with all us anxiety-ridden hopefuls by explaining why he doesn't want to talk about his already completed second novel with the comment, "It might be complete crap, so there's no point".
