Naipaul's Views

"He spoke at incredible length, in the most lugubrious terms, about the English intellectual life - of course it is dead (fool). Everything is repetitive. There is nothing new in the world and any attempt to experiment is in itself a sign of failure. And intellectual energy never dwelled in literature in the first place, but more in travel books."

- Zoe Williams takes exception to Naipaul's comments on the Today show.
