Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The book that first brought Naipaul worldwide acclaim, this richly comic novel tells the moving story of a man without a single asset who enters a life devoid of opportunity, and whose tumble-down house becomes a potent symbol of the search for identity in a postcolonial world.


Review:

"His ear is flawless...The pleasure of watching him at work is sufficient in itself...Naipaul's portrait of the Trinidad-Indian community is wonderfully calm and full."

New Yorker

Review:

"Naipaul has a wry and an engaging sense of humor, as well as a delicate understanding of sadness and futility..."

Francis Wyndham
