Views: 4,254

V. S. Naipaul was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2001. His new book is The Masque of Africa. “My theme is belief, not politics or economical life,” writes Mr. Naipaul. “And yet at the bottom of the continent the political realities are so overwhelming that they have to be taken into account.” He is the author of more than 20 books, including A House for Mr. Biswas, A Bend in the River and The Writer and the World. Mr. Naipaul is introduced and then interviewed by George Andreou, his longtime editor.
