'My purpose is not literary criticism or biography. I wish only to set out the writing and ways of seeing to which I was exposed.' For the 'serious traveller', one who is fully engaged with the world, there can be no single view. So here is colonial Trinidad (the early Derek Walcott and Naipaul's own father), to which is added the culture of school (Flaubert and the classical world).

Part meditation, part remembrance, A Writer's People is a privileged insight, full of gentleness, humour and feeling, into the mind of one of our greatest writers. 'The greatest writer now living in Britain.
