The chip-chip gatherers by Shiva Naipaul( Book )

47 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Chip-Chip Gatherers", his second novel, was winner of the Whitbread Literary Award in 1973 and is set in Naipaul's native Trinidad. It includes a new foreword by Amit Chaudhuri. The crowded, ramshackle community of the Settlement in Trinidad is at the mercy of a tyrant. Egbert Ramsaran, the proud owner of the Ramsaran Transport Company, who has become the richest man in town through sheer strength of will, is a capricious, eccentric despot who loves nobody and whom nobody can afford to ignore. There is his son Wilbert, bullied into passivity and failure; Vishnu the downtrodden grocer without grace or hope; the beautiful, unpredictable Sushila, who tries to wield her seductive powers over Ramsaran; and her daughter, Sita, intelligent enough to know that escape is possible. Their intricately woven lives are perfectly captured in all their pathos, comedy and humanity
Fireflies by Shiva Naipaul( Book )

42 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Classics. Shiva Naipaul was the brother of V.S. Naipaul and author of "Fireflies" and "The Chip-Chip Gatherers". "Fireflies", his first novel, published in 1970 and longlisted for the 'Lost Man Booker Award' in 2010, is set in Naipaul's native Trinidad. It includes a new foreword by Amit Chaudhuri. The Khojas are Trinidad's most venerated Hindu family. Rigidly orthodox, presiding over acres of ill-kept sugarcane and hoards of jewellery enthusiastically guarded by old Mrs Khoja, they seem to have triumphed more by default than by anything else. Only 'Baby' Khoja, who is parcelled off into an arranged marriage with a blustering bus driver, proves an exception to this rule. Her heroic story, of resourcefulness, strength and survival, is the gleaming thread in Shiva Naipaul's ferociously comic and profoundly sad first novel

A man of mystery and other stories by Shiva Naipaul( Book )

5 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and held by 178 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."--Jacket
