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.
