“The only lies for which we are truly punished are those we tell ourselves.”
V. S. Naipaul
The Nobel Prize for literature has gone to someone who deserves it. Like the great masters of the past, Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul tells stories that show us ourselves and the reality we live in. His use of language is as precise as it is beautiful. Simple, strong words, with which to express the humanity of all of us.
Trinidadian writer of Indian descent known for his pessimistic novels set in developing countries. For these revelations of what the Swedish Academy called “suppressed histories,” Naipaul won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2001.
His precise and lyrical writing such as “A Bend in the River" and “A House for Mr. Biswas" and brittle, misanthropic personality made him one of the world’s most admired and contentious writers. Naipaul won the Booker Prize in 1971 for his novel In a Free State. In 1989, he was awarded the Trinity Cross, Trinidad, and Tobago's highest national honor. He received a knighthood in Britain in 1990.
On 5 April 2011, the Post Office of Trinidad And Tobago issued a commemorative stamp featuring this acclaimed author.
