Praise

“Naipaul’s finest work so far.” —Chicago Tribune

“An elegant memoir, a subtly incisive self-reckoning.” —The 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
