Cool that's a name I was trying to remember. I read that one it was a very good read. Have you also read his Of Age and Innocence I think?
This also brings to mind a couple others
Jean Rhys - Wide Sargasso Sea (don't remember where she is from exactly)
My Bones and my Flute (Guyanese/Surinamese author of Dutch origin I believe - can't recall his name)
I like fiction mainly in the summer time for a level of escapism. lolDon't read much fiction anymore, but here's a few.
Wilson Harris - One of the greatest living writers.
I've read and enjoyed Naipaul, but he seems to have alienated just about everyone, including me.
