First UK Edition hardcover. Bound in the original publisher’s cloth, titled in gilt to the spine. Minor bumping to the spine ends, light paper toning, else clean and tight. Jacket unclipped and protected. Near Fine condition overall. This heartfelt and revealing account of Paul Theroux's thirty-year friendship with the legendary V. S. Naipaul is an intimate record of a literary mentorship that traces the growth of both writers' careers and explores the unique effect each had on the other. Built around exotic landscapes, anecdotes that are revealing, humorous, and melancholy, and three decades of mutual history, this is a personal account of how one develops as a writer and how a friendship waxes and wanes between two men who have set themselves on the perilous journey of a writing life.
