Ahilan Arulanantham

A beautifully written, insightful novel about (among other things) colonialism and race. I am not a fan of Naipaul’s non-fiction (or his politics), but I do not believe there is a better work of post-colonial fiction than this.

Speaking of colonial Hells! This is such a strange, grim, beautifully rendered book. Its nihilism about the human condition is so convincing! (And if that’s not a glowing recommendation, I don’t know what is - lol!) It’s hard to call this a “favorite” book but it has stayed with me longer than most. Ugh.
