Lives in halves: A homage to Vidiadhar Naipaul
Mishra, V. (2002) Lives in halves: A homage to Vidiadhar Naipaul. Meanjin, 61 (1). pp. 123-126.
Literary and film scholar Vijay Mishra highlights the similarities of his life with Vidiadhar Naipaul, in paying tribute to writer V.S. Naipaul on being awarded the Nobel Prize in literature for 2001. He suggests that Naipaul has lived his life in halves, as part of the Indian diaspora in Fiji and then in Trinidad which he considers 'half-baked societies', but it is these societies which have provided him his experiences and stories for his books.
