From his reporting on Islamic true believers to his descriptions of the postcolonial world, V. S. Naipaul has been a controversial figure in contemporary letters. Winner of the Nobel Prize, Naipaul has traveled throughout the world, looking at its varied cultures and seeking out others' stories, recording and transforming them. His engagement with postcolonial cultures informs his novels, such as "Guerrillas" and "A Bend in the River". However, it is in his documentaries (such as "Among the Believers" and "Beyond Belief") and his works that combine actual and fictional histories and memories ("Finding the Center", "The Enigma of Arrival", and "A Way in the World") that Naipaul's work best exhibits a growing awareness of the complexities of cultural difference and the incompleteness and uncertainty of understanding "strangers." In this book, Dagmar Barnouw explores the sophisticated strategies and experimentations that Naipaul employs in his cultural critique and in his enterprise of learning about and documenting the enduring strangeness of this world.
