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 Naipauls 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.
