1 journaler for this copy...
"In his first fiction for seven years, V.S. Naipaul ranges across the centuries and oceans, re-creating Walter Raleigh's doomed expedition to the Orinoco, the down-at-heel literary London of the 1950s, Miranda's disastrous invasion of South America. Opening in Port of Spain with Leonard Side, a mortician and decorator of cakes, and closing with a brutal murder in Africa, A Way in the World is an extraordinary, multi-layered portrait of individuals caught in the slip-stream of history.'
