Description

This book can be seen as the struggle of a man not naturally rebellious, but in whom rebellion is inspired by the forces of ritual, myth and custom. It is a work of great comic power qualified with firm and unsentimental compassion. '

'Naipaul has constructed a marvelous prose epic that matches the best nineteenth-century novels for richness and comic insight and final, tragic power' - NEWSWEEK
