Read full description of the books:



Após duas tentativas fracassadas de escrever um romance, V.S. Naipaul resolveu se debruçar sobre suas memórias de infância em Port of Spain, Trinidad, nos conturbados anos 1930 e 40. O livro que resultou desse esforço, Miguel Street,
foi concluído pouco antes de o autor completar 23 anos, mas só foi publicado quatro anos depois, em 1959, após o sucesso de O massagista místico.
Nesse livro, Naipaul descreve a vida na Miguel Street, rua de um bairro pobre de Trinidad, em uma série de histórias curtas ligadas pelo mesmo narrador, um garoto que nunca é nomeado. Nesse mundo em que os donos de carrocinhas de lixo são aristocratas e a violência doméstica é generalizada, desfilam os tipos mais excêntricos: Bogart, que passa o dia jogando paciência; Homem-homem, que planeja sua própria crucificação e pede para ser apedrejado, mas se revolta quando atiram pedras nele; Laura, que tem oito filhos com sete homens diferentes; e Bhakcu, um suposto gênio da mecânica que se torna líder espiritual.
Miguel Street é um livro de cor local e de aguda sensibilidade para descrever as mais diversas manifestações da condição humana, traços que já prenunciam o grande escritor que Naipaul viria a se tornar.

Read information about the author

Ebook Miguel Street read Online! Naipaul was born and raised in Trinidad, to which his grandfathers had emigrated from India as indentured servants. He is known for the wistfully comic early novels of Trinidad, the bleaker novels of a wider world remade by the passage of peoples, and the vigilant chronicles of his life and travels, all written in characteristic, widely admired, prose.

At 17, he won a Trinidad Government scholarship to study abroad. In the introduction to the 20th-anniversary edition of A House for Mr. Biswas, he reflected that the scholarship would have allowed him to study any subject at any institution of higher learning in the British Commonwealth, but that he chose to go to Oxford to do a simple degree in English. He went, he wrote, "in order at last to write...." In August 1950, Naipaul boarded a Pan Am flight to New York, continuing the next day by boat to London.

50 years later, Sir Vidiadhar Surajprasad "V. S." Naipaul was awarded the 2001 Nobel Prize in Literature "for having united perceptive narrative and incorruptible scrutiny in works that compel us to see the presence of suppressed histories."
