Nobel Prize-Winning Author V.S. Naipaul Is Dead

The family of Trinidad-born British author V.S. Naipaul says the Nobel Literature laureate has died.

He was 85.

A statement released by the family today said the novelist died at his London home.

According to his wife Nadira Naipaul, the acclaimed writer “died surrounded by those he loved, having lived a life which was full of wonderful creativity and endeavour.”

Born in Trinidad on Aug. 17, 1932, Naipaul studied at Oxford University and published his first novel, “The Mystic Masseur,” in 1957. He went on to write dozens of books, many dealing with colonialism and its legacy.

Naipaul was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2001 “for having united perceptive narrative and incorruptible scrutiny in works that compel us to see the presence of suppressed histories.”
