Partly autobiographical novel, with the inclusion of a couple of unwritten (or rather never before published stories). It gives us an insight in living in Trinidad and South America. The unwritten stories also seem to be based upon facts, so it has more the feel of a non-fiction book than a regular fiction novel. Probably not something I would have picked up myself, but as it won a major prize, I thought it needed checking out. ( )

Epigraph
And year by year
our memory fades
From all the circle of the hills.


Till from the garden and the wild
A fresh association blow,
And year by year the landscape grow
Familiar to the stranger's child.

In his long-awaited, vastly innovative new novel, Naipaul, "one of literature's great travelers" (Los Angles Times), spans continents and centuries to create what is at once an autobiography and a fictional archaeology of colonialism. "Dickensian . . . a brilliant new prism through which to view (Naipaul's) life and work."--New York Times.
