Product Description

Review

“Naipaul is Conrad’s heir as the annalist of the destinies of empires in the moral sense: what they do to human beings. His authority as a narrator is grounded in his memory of what others have forgotten, the history of the vanquished.” -- The Nobel Prize Citation

“His memoirs and travel books are a testament to his ruthless truth-telling about the collision of cultures.” -- The Globe and Mail
