Naipaul died at the age of 85. This famous Trinidad-born writer is famous for books about trauma due to changes in the post-colonial era such as "A House for Mr Biswas" and "In A Free State" which won the Man Booker award.

"He died surrounded by people who loved him, after living a life full of creativity and a journey full of challenges" his wife, Lady Nadira Naipaul said in a written statement on Saturday, August 11th 2018. His wife described this loud writer as "a giant in all his achievements".

Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul, son of a civil servant of the British colonial government at Trinidad, moved to England after receiving a scholarship to study English Literature at Oxford University. However, he spends most of his time on tours and although he is a pillar in British culture he is also a symbol of modern non-rooted groups.

Naipaul's early works centered on West Indies, but later came to other countries in the world. He sparked controversy after portraying former colonies as "half-baked people" and that Islam enslaved and sought to destroy other cultures.

When he was awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 2001, Swedish Academy described it as "literary exploration, just feeling comfortable as myself, in a voice that cannot be imitated". It was stated that he was "an observer of the kingdom's fate in terms of morality: its impact on humans".
