In her review of VS Naipaul's biography 'The World Is What It Is', Newsday writer Anne Hilton refers to the author as "Trinidad’s most famous son".

She adds: "Others have written learnedly and at length about this book in serious magazines and Sunday supplements in Europe and North America; the shocking revelations of the private life of the great writer hit headlines in the tabloids.", and "Love him or hate him, like him or loathe him, admire him or detest him, there’s no denying that A House for Mr Biswas, A Bend in the River and Among the Believers are works of genius."

What do you think? Is VS Naipaul really Trinidad's most famous son?
