Описание: Writing with unique access to his memories and his private papers, and with great love for his formidable body of work, Patrick French brings us unique and often surprising insights into the most enigmatic and compelling literary figure of the last fifty years.Beginning in rich and evocative detail in Trinidad, where V. S. Naipaul was born into an East Indian family, he examines their early privations, Naipauls first recollections, his life in the house on Luis Street, and his talent and fierce ambition at school, which won him a specially created scholarship to Oxford at the age of seventeen.

French describes how, once in England, homesickness and depression struck with great force, and - with recourse to the many surviving letters between them - the ways in which Pat, later Naipauls first wife, helped him to cope with his double exile. Sticking together through the uncertainties of early life in London, theirs was a bond that endured even as Naipaul embarked on an affair that was to last for a quarter of a century.Tracing the influences of his family - particularly his writerly father - his friends and his lovers on Naipauls unpredictable temperament and extraordinary work, Patrick French evokes a man who has only ever been a writer, whose every impulse has led to the lifelong craft he has executed with unrivalled clarity and skill.

Описание:

A monumental biography of the Indian subcontinent from the award-winning author of "The World Is What It Is: The Authorized Biography of V. S. Naipaul."
Second only to China in the magnitude of its economic miracle and second to none in its potential to shape the new century, India is fast undergoing one of the most momentous transformations the world has ever seen. In this dazzlingly panoramic book, Patrick French chronicles that epic change, telling human stories to explain a larger national narrative. With a familiarity and insight few Westerners could approach, he provides a vital corrective to the many outdated notions about a uniquely dynamic and consequential nation."

Описание: India`s Journey to Independence and Division. At midnight on 14 August 1947, Britain`s 350-year-old Indian Empire was broken into three pieces. The greatest mass migration in history began, as Muslims fled north and Hindus fled south, and Britain`s role as an imperial power came to an end. Patrick French`s vivid and surprising account of the chaotic final years of colonial rule in India has been acclaimed as the definitive book on this subject. Journeying across India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, he brings to life a cast of characters including spies, idealists, freedom fighters and politicians from Churchill to Gandhi.

Описание: The Last Great Imperial Adventurer. Soldier, explorer, mystic, guru, spy - Francis Younghusband began his career as a military adventurer and became a radical visionary. This award-winning biography traces the unpredictable life of the maverick with the `damned rum name`, who singlehandedly led the 1904 British invasion of Tibet, discovered a new route from China to India, organized the first expeditions up Mount Everest, and attempted to start a new world religion. Following in his footsteps, from Calcutta to the snows of the Himalayas, Patrick French pieces together the story of a man who embodied all the romance and folly of Britain`s lost Imperial dream.

Описание: This is the first major biography of V.S. Naipaul, Nobel Prize winner and one of the most compelling literary figures of the last fifty years. With great feeling for his formidable body of work, and exclusive access to his private papers and personal recollections, Patrick French has produced a lucid and astonishing account of this enigmatic genius: one which looks sensitively and unflinchingly at his relationships, his development as a writer and as a man, his outspokenness, his peerless creativity, and, his extraordinary and enduring position both outside and at the very centre of literary culture.'Its clarity, honesty, even-handedness, its panoramic range and close emotional focus, above all its virtually unprecedented access to the dark secret life at its heart, make it one of the most gripping biographies I've ever read' - Hilary Spurling, "Observer".

'A brilliant biography: exemplary in its thoroughness, sympathetic but tough in tone ...Reading it I was enthralled - and frequently amused (how incredibly funny Naipaul can be!)' - "Spectator". 'A masterly performance ...If a better biography is published this year, I shall be astonished' - Allan Massie, "Literary Review". 'Remarkable.

This biography will change the way we read Naipaul's books' - Craig Brown, "Book of the Week", "Mail on Sunday".

Описание: A Personal History of a Lost Land. Tibet has long fascinated the West, but what really lies beyond our romantic image of a mystical mountain kingdom of peace and spirituality? Travelling through the country, Patrick French meets exiled monks, nomads and a nun secretly fighting Chinese rule, but also young Tibetans with a more pragmatic attitude to their situation. Interweaving these encounters with little-known stories of war and turmoil from Tibet`s past, he reveals a more nuanced, fascinating and surprising picture of this complex place than any other book has done.
