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.
"Whatever his literary form, Naipaul is a master." -The New York Review of Books "This is India. I don't know any other book that comes so near to capturing the whole crazy spectrum. . . . Brilliant." -John Wain, The Observer "His narrative skill is spectacular. One returns with pleasure to the slow hand-in-hand revelation of both India and himself. . . . There is a kind of displaced person who has a better sense of place than anybody: Mr. Naipaul is an outstanding example." -The Times (London) "[Naipaul's] penetrating, opinionated travel writing . . . makes up a remarkable running commentary on the clash of civilizations." -The New York Times
