From the Back Cover:

"An elegant memoir, a subtly incisive self-reckoning." — Washington Post Book World

"Far and away the most curious novel I've read in a long time, and maybe the most hypnotic book I've ever read." — St. Petersburg Times

"The conclusion is both heart-breaking and bracing: the only antidote to destruction — of dreams, of reality — is remembering. As eloquently as anyone now writing, Naipaul remembers." — Time

"V.S. Naipaul is a man who can inspire readers to follow him through the Slough of Despond and beyond… Like a computer game [this book] leads the reader on by a series of clues, nearer and nearer to an understanding of the man and the writer. Few memoirs can claim as much." — Newsday

From the Inside Flap:

raphical novel of a journey from the British colony of Trinidad to the ancient countryside of England.
