Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the "brilliant novel" (The New York Times) V.S. Naipaul takes us deeply into the life of one manan Indian who, uprooted by the bloody tides of Third World history, has come to live in an isolated town at the bend of a great river in a newly independent African nation. Naipaul gives us the most convincing and disturbing vision yet of what happens in a place caught between the dangerously alluring modern world and its own tenacious past and traditions.

About the Author

V.S. Naipaul was born in Trinidad in 1932. He went to England on a scholarship in 1950. After fouryears at Oxford he began to write, and has since published over twenty books of fiction and nonfiction, including A House for Mr. Biswas, An Area of Darkness, Among the Believers, and The Enigma of Arrival, all available in Vintage.
