A man of mystery and other stories by Shiva Naipaul ( Book )
8 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sharply observed, wryly comic yet touched with sadness, these eight stories were written between 1969 and 1974. 'A Man of Mystery' charts the tragic downfall of Mr Green, a shoemaker overtaken by commercialization. Other stories range from the hilarious rivalry of a group of competitors in 'The Beauty Contest' to the heartbreaking disintegration of a marriage in 'The Dolly House'. Masterpieces of storytelling, they successfully capture the absurdities and pathos of human behaviour."--BOOK JACKET

Lucioles by Shiva Naipaul ( Book )
2 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in French and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Le frère décédé de V. S. Naipaul est un "grand romancier dans la tradition de Dickens", comme en témoigne ce roman de 1970, puissant et maîtrisé. Il a pour cadre la colonie hindoue de Trinidad et pour point de départ une mésalliance qui tourne au mariage désastreux. Dans une société multiraciale et multireligieuse où l'individu n'est rien en dehors de la famille, la chose risque d'avoir des conséquences incalculables. "Multiples intrigues" et "morceaux de bravoure": de quoi satisfaire tous les lecteurs. La critique a souligné que ce roman-chronique est écrit avec le détachement de l'ironiste: multiraciale et multireligieuse

1 edition published in 1996 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
