Descriere

In the "brilliant novel" (The New York Times) V.S. Naipaul takes us deeply into the life of one man—an Indian who, uprooted by the bloody tides of Third World history, has come to live in an isolated town at the bend of a great river in a newly independent African nation.

Naipaul gives us the most convincing and disturbing vision yet of what happens in a place caught between the dangerously alluring modern world and its own tenacious past and traditions.

Review

"For sheer abundance of talent, there ca hardly be a writer alive who surpasses V.S. Naipaul." — The New York Times Book Review

"Confirms Naipaul's position as one of the best writers now at work." — Walter Clemons, Newsweek

"The sweep of Naipaul's imagination, the brilliant fictional frame that expresses it, are in my view without equal today." — Elizabeth Hardwick
