Nobel-Winning British Novelist Naipaul Dies At 85

British author V.S. Naipaul, a famous Nobel laureate who wrote about the trauma of postcolonial change, died at the age of 85.

Naipaul, born in Trinidad and son of an Indian official, was best known for his work, including "A House for Mr. Biswas" and his award "In a Free State", awarded by Man Booker.

"He died surrounded by people he loved to have lived a life full of creativity and effort," said his wife, Lady Nadira Naipaul, on Saturday. She described the Frankish author as a "giant in everything he has accomplished".
