Read full description of the books:

Para los vecinos de Miguel Street, un rincón olvidado de la capital de Trinidad, su barrio es un compendio del mundo, donde cada cual es diferente a los demás. Allí viven Popo, el carpintero, que descuida el trabajo que le da sustento para construir «la cosa sin nombre». Man-man, que huye de la oficina para representar su propia crucifixión. Big Foot, el matón asustadizo de lágrimas cristalizadas. Y la adorable señora Hereira, esclavizada por un marido monstruoso.

Sus vidas ­y las leyendas que los vecinos levantan a su alrededor­ son interpretadas por V.S. Naipaul con verbo dickensiano y compasión chejoviana. Situada durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial y narrada por un adolescente sin nombre, precoz observador de su barrio, Miguel Street (1959) es una novela de juventud, tierna y divertida, que rebosa vida en todas sus páginas.

Read information about the author

Ebook Miguel Street read Online! Naipaul was born and raised in Trinidad, to which his grandfathers had emigrated from India as indentured servants. He is known for the wistfully comic early novels of Trinidad, the bleaker novels of a wider world remade by the passage of peoples, and the vigilant chronicles of his life and travels, all written in characteristic, widely admired, prose.

At 17, he won a Trinidad Government scholarship to study abroad. In the introduction to the 20th-anniversary edition of A House for Mr. Biswas, he reflected that the scholarship would have allowed him to study any subject at any institution of higher learning in the British Commonwealth, but that he chose to go to Oxford to do a simple degree in English. He went, he wrote, "in order at last to write...." In August 1950, Naipaul boarded a Pan Am flight to New York, continuing the next day by boat to London.

50 years later, Sir Vidiadhar Surajprasad "V. S." Naipaul was awarded the 2001 Nobel Prize in Literature "for having united perceptive narrative and incorruptible scrutiny in works that compel us to see the presence of suppressed histories."
