Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Owning a small portion of the Trinidad earth and a respectable house of his own is the dream and the reality sustaining Mohun Biswas through a life of frustration and despair after he marries into the domineering Tulsi family. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.


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
