The ins and outs of this story are not known and perhaps awaits someone's memoir. Still, everyone walks away with a lot o' loot, which might mitigate bad feelings. If Mr. Little is looking for a new client to make ridiculously rich, I am willing to sacrifice myself.

Almost seven months after Mandrake disclosed that JK Rowling had dumped the agent who conjured up her millions, theHarry Potterauthor has managed to avoid an appointment with him in court.
Mandrake can disclose that Rowling has reached a financial settlement with Christopher Little, the enigmatic agent who spotted the potential of her first manuscript and turned her novels about the child wizard into a multi-million pound industry.
“JK Rowling and her former agent, Christopher Little, have reached an amicable agreement concluding their long-standing business relationship, the terms of which remain confidential,” I am told by a spokesman for Little. “No further comments will be issued by either party.”
