An attractive first edition/first printing in about Fine condition with slightly yellowed page edges in alike dust-wrapper, SIGNED and dated "4-5-94" by author V. S. Naipaul directly on the title page.
The New York Times says this work "spans continents and centuries to create what is at once an autobiography and a fictional archaeology of colonialism…a brilliant new prism through which to view (Naipaul's) life and work." It is a series of extended essays, meditations and dramatized historical events about historical figures such as Sir Walter Raleigh and Francisco de Miranda, a precursor to Bolivar's revolution.
