A classic of modern travel writing, An Area of Darkness is Nobel laureate V. S. Naipaul's profound reckoning with his ancestral homeland and an extraordinarily perceptive chronicle of his first encounter with India.

A novel of colonialism and revolution, death, sexual violence and political and spiritual impotence.
