Editorial Reviews


"Somehow over the course of his 35-year career, V.S. Naipaul has developed into an almost extraliterary figure....Nixon's critique exposes the scantiness of this postcolonial emperor's attire with an eloquent combination of outrage and humor."--Village Voice

"A well-written, lucid challenge to the prevailing Anglo-American anointment of Naipaul as an 'expert' on the Third World at large....Nixon defines terms superbly, exhumes subtleties, and challanges standard thinking."--Georgia Review

This is the best of many books on Naipaul and a major contribution to postcolonial studies. Highly recommended."--Choice

"Rob Nixon has written a brilliant, compelling study of one of the finest and most misunderstood writers of the twentieth century. This work sheds new light on the entire body of Naipaul's writing, and sets an entirely new standard for Naipaul criticism and scholarship."--Arnold Rampersad, Princeton University

"Nixon's book reintroduces all the familiar arguments that expose Naipaul's ideological underpinnings, yet the clarity and consistency of its discourse--couched in elegant, forceful prose--evince freshness and novelty."--Modern Fiction Studies

"A book that subsequent writers on Naipaul will have to take into consideration."--Ariel
