The World Is What It Is

Regardless of what one might think of V.S. Naipul, Patrick French's new Naipul's biography titled "The World Is What It Is" is an engrossing read. Mr. French is an eloquent writer himself, conjuring vivid vignettes of life in colonialTrinidad and creating a stirring portrait of the controversial Nobel Laureate.

The Guardian's Hilary Spurling reviewed the biography and you can read her review, here.
