Product description

Review

"For sheer abundance of talent, there ca hardly be a writer alive who surpasses V.S. Naipaul." --The New York Times Book Review

"Confirms Naipaul's position as one of the best writers now at work." --Walter Clemons, Newsweek

"The sweep of Naipaul's imagination, the brilliant fictional frame that expresses it, are in my view without equal today." --Elizabeth Hardwick

Synopsis

In an African country that has suffered revolution and civil war and that is headed by a man of almost insane energy and crudity, one restless, reflective, and isolated villager and his friends uneasily submit to the tide of events.
