Sir V[idia] S. Naipaul TC (1932 – 2018), was a writer who won the 2001 Nobel Prize for Literature. He was born in Trinidad in a family with Indian roots, resided in England as an adult, and traveled across, and wrote about, India, Africa, the Islamic world, and South and North America in his novels and non-fiction works. He is known for his comic early novels set in Trinidad and Tobago, his bleaker later novels of the wider world, and his autobiographical chronicles of life and travels. He published more than thirty books, both of fiction and nonfiction, over some fifty years.
"He has a genius for noticing, a genius for freezing the instant when meaning is born from the accidents of the everyday."--Hillary Mantel, The New York Review of Books.--Wikipedia.
