British writer V.S. Naipaul of Indian ancestry had won the 2001 Nobel Literature Prize

 

Peter Carey, the Australian born author had claimed the 2001 Booker Prize for his book, True History of the Kelly Gang. 
                         It's a historically-based novel about Ned Kelly, an Australian outlaw who lived a short and hard-edged life of crime during the nineteenth century. The novel merges the Western, adventure, and historical fiction genres into one very compelling read. The judges explained that they chose Carey's novel "because it is a magnificent story of the early settler days in Australia, expressed through the unforgettable voice of a vilified man who came to stand for more than he knew."
                      Peter Carey won the Booker in 1988 for his book Oscar and Lucinda.  Before, South African writer J.K. Coetzee had won the Booker Prize twice (Life and Times of Michael K. in 1983 and Disgrace in 1999)
