VS Naipaul - The Legacy



  • Time

    Conversation starts at 6.30pm

  • Location

    The Groucho Club, Dean Street, W1D


One of only two Caribbean writers to have won a Nobel Prize, VS Naipaul was nothing if not controversial on a wide range of issues.

He wrote of his native Trinidad, Islam, the African Condition and especially other writers. His recent death has brought out the good and the bad of his legacy.
Farrukh Dhondy, the writer and former Channel 4 Commissioning Editor, defends his close friend to the hilt, in conversation with Colin Grant, the British Jamaican author and Monique Roffey, the Trinidadian author. We are also hoping to be joined by VS Naipaul's wife.
Was VS Naipaul 'the ogre' a media confection or just a brilliant and misguided writer? Come and hear this active debate.
