V.S. Naipaul: Fiction and Travel Writing

Rajeshwar Mittapalli (Editor) Michael Hensen (Editor)
Synopsis A constant concern of Naipaul's novels and travel writing is the negotiation of where the individual is situated. Many of his fictional figures remain unhoused, displaced, uprooted with no distinct place called 'home' to be proud of and are, therefore, located on the margins of fixed and shifting identities. In formal terms, Naipaul experiments along the boundaries of fiction and non-fiction, in particular travel writing, and often fuses genres to give birth to new ones. On the occasion of Naipaul's winning the Nobel Prize for literature this anthology presents a perceptive assessment of some of his important works of fiction and travel writing and puts into perspective his contribution to literature as a whole.
