Linked stories set in Naipaul's native Trinidad, written prior to, but published following, his 1957 first novel, Mystic Masseur. The collection enhanced Naipaul's acclaim as an emerging voice, a writer of restraint, of vivid people and settings, of universal truths amid the poverty and exoticism of a Port of Spain slum street. The dust jacket, with a brilliant, uncredited illustration, is preserved in a clear, removable archival sleeve.

Price: $100.00
