V. S. Naipaul was born in Trinidad in 1932. He went to England on a scholarship in 1950. After four years at Oxford he began to write, and since then he has followed no other profession. He is the author of more than twenty books of fiction and nonfiction and the recipient of numerous honors, including the Nobel Prize in 2001, the Booker Prize in 1971, and a knighthood for services to literature in 1990. He lives in Wiltshire, England.
"Extraordinarily forceful. . . . Naipaul is an elegantly precise and exacting writer." -Newsweek "A deep pleasure to read. . . . Adventurous, inquiring, observant, penetrating, intelligent." -The Washington Post Book World "Typical Naipaul-brilliantly lucid, terse, with something hardbitten yet resigned in the emotional background." -The New York Times Book Review
