Editorial Reviews:

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.


"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


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

Francis Wyndham
