    Nobel Prize-winning author VS Naipaul dies aged 85

    Novelist Sir Vidiadhar Surajprasad “Vidia” Naipaul, who won the Nobel Prize in literature, has died aged 85, his family have said.


    Sir Vidia, who was born in rural Trinidad in 1932, wrote more than 30 books including A Bend in the River (1979) and his masterpiece, A House for Mr Biswas (1961).

    Awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 2001, the committee said Sir Vidia had “united perceptive narrative and incorruptible scrutiny in works that compel us to see the presence of suppressed histories”.

    “V. S. Naipaul, who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2001, was born on which island?”


    This question was asked in today’s episode of “Celebrity Eggheads”.
