Dinner with Vidia

In the Indian Economic Times, Vikram Doctor leafs through V.S. Naipaul's books looking for references to meals, concluding that Naipaul is no foodie--"in Naipaul’s novels if food is consumed with enjoyment it usually has disastrous consequences"--but "as a writer who builds on carefully noted details, he uses observation of food--its preparation, rituals, consumption--to convey larger points." (Doctor also reveals that Naipaul's sister Savi makes a mean dosti roti.)
