Naipaul’s Truth: The Mak...
V.S. Naipaul once described his purpose as an author as nothing less than a “commitment to deliver the truth.” One of the world’s greatest, and most controversial, living writers, he has written extensively about the enduring economic, cultural, and psychological effects of colonialism, particularly its assaults on individual identity. In Naipaul’s Truth, Lillian Feder, noted author of several classic works of literary criticism, explores Naipaul’s writings to deliver an original and beautifully written analysis of her subject. Feder describes Naipaul’s methods for discovering the truth about himself and the world he explores, and she concludes that Naipaul’s literature has rightfully earned a place in the upper echelons of the modern canon. Simultaneously an intellectual biography and a revealing psychological portrait of the artist, Naipaul’s Truth is a masterpiece of literary biography.
