1980VSNaipaul

V.S. Naipaul in 1980.

Sir Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul, Kt., TC (born August 17, 1932 in Chaguanas, Trinidad and Tobago), better known as V. S. Naipaul, is a Trinidadian-born British writer of Indo-Trinidadian descent, currently resident in Wiltshire. In 1971, Naipaul became the first person of Indian origin to win a Booker Prize for his book In a Free State. Naipaul was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2001 and knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1990. His fiction and especially his travel writing have been criticized for their allegedly unsympathetic portrayal of the Third World.
