What people are saying - Write a review
I forgot to mention (perhaps for a book club) that I have been mourning V.S. Naipaul who died a few days ago. We met him (better said, we saw him) in Trinidad and Tobago where he was born and where I was based for two years with WHO. Through his Caribbean short and long novels he introduced us, reluctantly, to his Caribbean and to his India. He did not like either too much but his writing was superior to his liking. He did not like Oxford either.
To commemorate him I got myself an original edition of "The Return of Eva Peron-with the Trinidad Killings" which I illustrate below. It is amazing to me that he put these two in the same volume (plus an extra one). He has his very reasons. There are profound similarities in his writings about the, badly called, third world. Things are happening and in the way to happen even more, in our, also wrongly called, first world.
