Novels of V.S. Naipaul
He is mainly deal about the cultural confusion of the third world and his own experience as an Indian in the West Indies

The leading novelist of the English-speaking Caribbean, V.S Naipaul is a keen observer of the problems an outsider has to face in the Third World countries. The experience through which he has undergone has helped him to depict the true nature of the plight an outsider (Indian) had to undergone in the contemporary era. Being an Indian, he had pathetic experience in West Indies, treated as a West Indian in England, and a nomadic intellectual in a postcolonial world. Hence Naipaul`s novels are the authentic impersonation of his own experiences. Naipaul`s novels verbalize the spirit of "Art for Life`s Sake" and his character portraiture attains mellowness in his masterful artistry. The novels of Mulk Raj, in some cases also portray a tragicomic view of life depicting the identity crisis, an upshot of the colonial supremacy in the Third World.
