From the Back Cover:

“A Tolstoyan spirit.... The so-called Third World has produced no more brilliant literary artist.” — John Updike

“Naipaul is a master of English prose.” — J. M. Coetzee, New York Review of Books

“V. S. Naipaul has a substantial claim as a comic writer.... This humor, conducted throughout with the utmost stylistic quietude, is completely original.” — Kingsley Amis, The Spectator

“Mr. Naipaul travels with the artist’s eye and ear and his observations are sharply discerning.” — Evelyn Waugh

“For sheer abundance of talent there can hardly be a writer alive who surpasses V. S. Naipaul. [He is] the world’s writer, a master of language and perception.” — The New York Times Book Review

From the Inside Flap:

(includes The Suffrage of Elvira, A Flag on the Island and Mr. Stone and the Knights Companion)

Written early in V. S. Naipaul?s prolific career, these three works of fiction ? two novels and a collection of stories ? are ample evidence of his cosmopolitan reach and his seemingly effortless command of broad comedy and acute observation.
