Author-Naipaul V.S.

Description-

`A work of great comic power qualified with firm and unsentimental compassion' Anthony Burgess

A House for Mr Biswas is V. S. Naipaul's unforgettable fourth book and the early masterpiece of his brilliant career. Born the `wrong way' and thrust into a world that greeted him with little more than a bad omen, Mohun Biswas has spent his forty-six years of life striving for independence. But his determined efforts have met only with calamity. Shuttled from one residence to another after the drowning of his father, for which he is inadvertently responsible, Mr Biswas yearns for a place he can call home. He marries into the domineering Tulsi family, on whom he becomes indignantly dependent, but rebels and takes on a succession of occupations in an arduous struggle to weaken their hold over him and purchase a house of his own.

Heartrending and darkly comic, A House for Mr Biswas has been hailed as one of the twentieth century's finest novels and this triumph of resilience, persistence and dignity masterfully evokes a man's quest for autonomy against the backdrop of post-colonial Trinidad.

`A marvellous prose epic that matches the best nineteenth-century novels' Newsweek
