Summary
"In 1950, after winning a scholarship from the government of Trinidad, V.S. Naipaul, aged seventeen, left home for the first time. Following a two-week journey by steamer, he arrived in Oxford, England, a world utterly removed from the one he had longed to escape and to which he would never really return. This collection of letters gives us an intimate view of Naipaul's formative years." -- Jacket
