In 1949, aged 17, V.S. Naipaul left his native Trinidad to take up an Island Scholarship at University College, Oxford. This volume presents his letters to his father - a journalist with the Trinidad Guardian - over four years until his father's death from a heart attack in 1953, aged 47.
V S Naipaul was born in Trinidad in 1932. He came to England on a scholarship in 1950. He spent four years at University College, and began to write, in London, in 1954. In 1993 he was the winner of the first David Cohen British Literature Award in recognition of a 'lifetime's achievement by a living British Writer'.
