Naipaul, A House For Mr Biswas.

Naipaul, V.S. A House For Mr Biswas. Middlesex, Penguin Books, 1984. 11 x 18cm. 590 pages. Original softcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. From the library of swiss – american – irish poet Chuck Kruger.

In his forty-six short years, Mr. Mohun Biswas has been fighting against destiny to achieve some semblance of independence, only to face a lifetime of calamity. Shuttled from one residence to another after the drowning death of his father, for which he is inadvertently responsible, Mr. Biswas yearns for a place he can call home. But when he marries into the domineering Tulsi family on whom he indignantly becomes dependent, Mr. Biswas embarks on an arduous–and endless–struggle to weaken their hold over him and purchase a house of his own. A heartrending, dark comedy of manners, A House for Mr. Biswas masterfully evokes a man’s quest for autonomy against an emblematic post-colonial canvas. [Penguin Books]
