More Information
VS Naipaul, Vidiadhar Surajprasad, was born in Trinidad, though was later educated in Oxford thanks to a grant from the Trinidad Government. He has since enjoyed huge critical acclaim. In 1971 he won the Booker Prize and, in 2001, the Nobel Prize for Literature. In all cases of dual publication the UK edition precedes the US. The bibliography lists the English edition first. His first three books generally regarded as the rarest and consequently the most valuable.
