Biography through the genre of memoir,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A House For Mr Biswas (Paperback)
VS Naipaul is dear to my heart as he is a Trinidadian and I am part Trinidadian. To me this is his best work as it combines the genres of novel writing and memoir writing. A house for Mr Biswas is often interpreted as the biography of Naipaul's father but it can just be read without making that connection if you are not familiar with Naipaul's life and work. This will also appeal to anybody who has links to Trinidad or indeed anyone who is interested in Trinidad or West Indian culture.
