Synopsis

An astonishingly prescient, beautifully written and deeply humane meditation on belief from Nobel Laureate, Sir VS Naipaul.

Naipaul travels, he asks, he listens attentively and, above all else, he notices, often seeing what others do not or cannot. That acute gift has never left him . . . he is sustained by the old ideal of unadorned truth-telling

New Statesman

The quality of Naipaul’s writing – simple, concise, engaging – rarely varies . . . Above all, Naipaul’s latest African journey is eyewitness reporting at its best

Time

Compelling, insightful, often sombrely beautiful
