Aravind Adiga was born in Madras, India, in 1974. He has written three novels to date and a number of short stories. His first novel, The White Tiger, won the 2008 Booker prize. His other novels are Between the Assassinations. Picador, 2008 and Last Man in Tower: Fourth Estate, 2011, neither of which achieved the success of Adiga’s debut novel. Adiga has been criticised for writing about India as an outsider. Born to a middle class family, he left India to study in the United States, Britain and finally Australia, where he now lives. Adiga’s work falls, then, into the category of Indian diasporic writing which frequently faces criticism from Indian-based writers who question the authenticity of work produced abroad.
