With an introduction by Teju ColeHe was struck again and again by the wonder of being in his own house, the audacity of it: to walk in through his own front gate, to bar entry to whoever he wished, to close his doors and windows every night. Mr. Biswas has been told since the day of his birth that misfortune will follow him - and so it has.

Meaning only to avoid punishment, he causes the death of his father and the dissolution of his family. Wanting simply to flirt with a beautiful woman, he ends up marrying her, and reluctantly relying on her domineering family for support. But in spite of endless setbacks, Mr.

Biswas is determined to achieve independence, and so he begins his gruelling struggle to buy a home of his own. A House for Mr Biswas is Nobel Prize in Literature winner V. S.

Naipaul's unforgettable masterpiece. Heart-rending and darkly comic, it has been hailed as one of the twentieth century's finest novels, a classic that evokes a man's quest for autonomy against the backdrop of post-colonial Trinidad. 'A work of great comic power qualified with firm and unsentimental compassion' Anthony Burgess'A marvellous prose epic that matches the best nineteenth-century novels' Newsweek
