    It really is a tragedy that Shiva Naipaul died so young, because, aside from the obvious reason, had he lived and continued to write, his body of work might have rivaled that of his muchfamous older brother The Chip Chip Gatherers measures up well against the works of V.S Naipaul, which is about the highest compliment I could pay to any novel W
