Journal Entry 2 by wingover-the-moonwing at Lausanne, Vaud Switzerland on Tuesday, February 02, 2016
This took me quite a long time to read even though it is quite short - It is a collection of stories about the individual inhabitants of a narrow street in Port of Spain, Trinidad, seen through the eyes of an adolescent boy, ending with him getting a job and leaving the island... it feels very real. I have not done any research to see if this is autobiographical, but if Naipaul invented these characters it is truly brilliant, full of spice and flavour.

V.S.Naipaul, écrivain de Trinité-et-Tobago, ce sera une première pour moi, le lire en anglais. Je crois par contre avoir déjà lu quelque chose de lui, il y a longtemps.

How I left Miguel Street: the narrator is no longer a teenager now, several years later. He starts a new life abroad.
All were poor but none were starving, on Miguel Street (Port of Spain, TT).
