Book Description
In these eleven pieces – brought together for the first time -Naipaul charts more than half a century of fiction in particular. Here are his boyhood experiences of reading books and his first youthful efforts at writing them; the early glimmers and the evolution of ideas about the proper relation of particular literary forms to particular cultures and identities. Here, too, are Naipaul’s observations on his putative literary forebear, Conrad, and the moving preface he wrote to the only book his father ever published. And his celebrated Nobel lecture, ‘Two Worlds’, Naipaul reflects on the full scope of his career, rounding off the volume as an intellectual autobiography.
