About this title


Offers an account of the author's literary beginnings and growth and a narrative of a journey into the tribal and modern life of the Ivory Coast

From Publishers Weekly:

In the essay, "Prologue to an Autobiography," Naipaul recounts his beginnings as a writer and renders a touching portrait of his father. In "The Crocodiles of Yamoussoukro," a study of the Ivory Coast, he delineates two sections of the modern African mind: the Westernized "day" mind and that of the ageless, magic-haunted "night." PW called both narratives "small works of art." January
