Summary

Award-winning author Shiva Naipaul presents a stunning work of nonfiction recounting the time he spent travelling in Africa and what he learned from the people he met there.

In the 1970s Shiva Naipaul travelled to Africa, visiting Kenya, Tanzania, and Zambia for several months. Through his experiences, the places he visited and his various encounters, he aimed to discover what “liberation,” “revolution,” and “socialism” meant to the ordinary people. His journey of discovery is brilliantly documented in this intimate, comic, and controversial portrayal of a continent on the brink of change.

Author Biography

He attended the Queen’s Royal College and St. Mary’s College in Trinidad before emigrating to the UK after winning a scholarship to study Chinese at Oxford. He is the award-winning author of the novels Fireflies, The Chip-Chip Gatherers, and A Hot Country, as well as three works of nonfiction, North of South, Journey to Nowhere, and An Unfinished Journey.
