A House for Mr Biswas - V.S. Naipaul 1961 - André Deutsch, London - First Edition ‘Naipaul has constructed a marvellous prose epic that matches the best nineteenth-century novels for richness of comic insight and final, tragic power.’ –Newsweek

A bright first edition of Naipaul’s unforgettable novel, considered one of the twentieth century’s finest books. Set against an emblematic post colonial canvas, it tells the story of Mr Mohun Biswas – inspired by Naipaul’s father – who in his forty-six short years, has fought against destiny in the hopes of achieving some semblance of independence, only to face a lifetime of calamity. After the drowning death of his father, for which he is inadvertently responsible, Mr Biswas seeks a place he can call home. But when he marries into the domineering Tulsi family, he embarks upon a quest for autonomy.
