Description

A rich, fine and moving book of letters between father and son in the history of literature.

In 1950, just before his eighteenth birthday, V S Naipaul left his native Trinidad for the first time - to take up an Island scholarship at University College, Oxford. In 1953, aged forty-seven, his father, a journalist with the Trinidad Guardian, died of a heart attack. Those three years saw an intense and intensely human, correspondence between father and son, marked by great mutual reliance and affection, and by a shared literary ambition.

It was a father's dream that his and his son's name might together appear on the title-page of a book.
