The Trinidad-born Naipaul won the 2001 Nobel Prize for literature and his work includes novels, short stories and travel writing.
Lady Naipaul confirmed that her husband died peacefully.
“He was a giant in all that he achieved and he died surrounded by those he loved having lived a life which was full of wonderful creativity and endeavour,” she said
Naipaul made his his name with the 1961 novel A House for Mr Biswas, which took three years to write.
