Naipaul Rants

He's an angry, bitter man.

The BBC New reports:
The author slates Dickens for his "repetitiveness" and cites the experience of reading Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey as a revelatory one.

"I thought halfway through the book, 'Here am I, a grown man reading about this terrible vapid woman and her so-called love life.'

You don't like Dickens and Austen - writers both more enduring and vastly more readable than you?

I spit on you.
