BOOK SA Gets its VS Naipaul Photo!

And here it is:

VS and Nadira Naipaul

Sir Vidia and Lady Naipaul were photographed by Khadija Bradlow in Soweto this morning, on a visit to the Hector Pieterson Memorial.

Said Bradlow of the moment, “Both were very visibly moved”.

Thanks very much to Bradlow for sending in rhe pic. BOOK SA finishes in second place in the stakes to publish the first photo of the Nobel prize winner in South Africa – the blue ribbon going to Fred Khumalo and the Sunday Times – but we rest content secure in the knowledge that our photograph is the better one on any number of counts.

And now, permit me to lose my dignity for the briefest of instants: Whoopee!
