Naipaul's first book dealing with the United States is a revealing summary of his encounters with Southerners of all types, some eager to talk, others inclined to be guarded. An account of insights into a complex region and its culture of "order and faith and music and melancholy."
This outstanding book is bound in genuine leather and features gilded, sewn in pages and ribbon marker, simply superb quality, Franklin Library at its best.
