This Volume Brings Together Some Of The Most Recent Revaluations Of The Multifaceted Oeuvre Of V.S. Naipaul, Comprising His Novels, Short Stories, Travel Writing, Historical Accounts, And Varied Essays. Focussed On The Author'S Creative Anxieties And Strategies As Much As On His Provocative Discourses On Diverse Nations, Cultures, Histories And Communities Across The Globe, It Closely Critiques Most Of His Major Texts. The Anthology Also Explores The Extent Of Fixities And Ambivalences In Naipaul'S Much Talked About Eurocentrism, His Insights Into And Distortions Of The Past, And His Assimilations/Appropriations Through The Deployment Of The Telling Detail And The Brilliant Prose. At Once Exciting And Instructive, The Volume Richly Investigates The Author'S Ceaseless Endeavour To Come To Terms With The Modern Man'S Predicament In Today'S Highly Tangled Scenario.
