Naipaul & Theroux end feud over dedicated books
The feud between V.S. Naipaul and Paul Theroux is over. The writers buried the hatchet over the weekend at the Hay literary festival, reports The Independent. They shook hands after an intervention by Ian McEwan.
The two writers had met in 1966 but fell out 30 years later after Theroux picked up a rare bookseller’s catalogue and spotted some of his books for sale, with some high price-tags, that had been dedicated by him to Naipaul and his first wife.
