'V.S. Naipaul's Journeys: From Periphery to Center' by Sanjay Krishnan (Columbia University Press, 2020): Reviewed by Dr Gillian Dooley

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Sir Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul, who was born in Trinidad in 1932, died in England in August 2018. In the period since Naipaul’s death many obituaries have appeared, but despite his Nobel Prize for Literature in 2001 little recent academic scholarship on his work has been published, and few international meetings have been devoted to his work. He is at present more noteworthy for being controversial than for being one of the great writers of the twentieth century. One cannot yet write about Naipaul without first confronting this fact in one way or another.
