Noble Prize-Winning Writer V.S Naipaul Died at his Home in London aged 85 Aug 12 2018 9:50 AM | Sir Vidiadhar Surajprasad "Vidia" Naipaul, was an Indo-Caribbean writer and Nobel Laureate who was born in Trinidad with British citizenship died Aug 11 at his home in London. He was 85. 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. In the second half of the 20th century, few writers were as praised - or scorned - as Naipaul, a prose stylist with talent as great as his penchant for controversy. "If a writer doesn't generate hostility," Naipaul once said, "he is dead." . NDTV
