Product Details

Praise

“His writing is clean and beautiful, and he has a great eye for nuance…. No American writer could achieve [his] kind of evenhandedness, and it gives Naipaul’s perceptions an almost built-in originality.” —Atlantic Monthly

“Naipaul’s chapters honor the diversity that marks the South…. Conservatives and liberals, whites and blacks, men and women speak for themselves, and reveal the dark side of the story in their own ways … fascinating and revealing.” —The New Republic

“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, The 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

“His comprehension is astute and penetrating…. The book he has written brings new understanding [of] the subject.” —The New York Times Book Review
