I am not sure what I am reading, is it fact or fiction? The line is very blurred. Naipaul seems to take great enjoyment in weaving fact into fiction but to the reader (or at least to me), it is confusing, and after a while, I find myself what is the point of the book? ( )

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.
