Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The time is World War II, the setting a derelict street in Trinidad's capital, Port of Spain. In this tender early novel, Naipaul renders the residents' lives (and the legends that arise around them) with Dickensian verve and Chekhovian compassion.

About the Author

V. S. Naipaul was born in Trinidad in 1932. He went to England on a scholarship in 1950. After four years at Oxford he began to write, and since then he has followed no other profession. He is the author of more than twenty books of fiction and nonfiction and the recipient of numerous honors, including the Nobel Prize in 2001, the Booker Prize in 1971, and a knighthood for services to literature in 1990. He lives in Wiltshire, England.
