Weak-to-weak continuous operator which is not norm-continuous

I saw in some text that if an operator $T:Y^\star \rightarrow X^\star$ (where $X$ and $Y$ are separable Banach spaces) is $w^\star - w^\star$ - continuous then $T$ is the adjoint of some operator $S:X\rightarrow Y$. Can anyone write a short proof for this claim or give some reference?
