A stranger could drive through Miguel Street and just say Slum because he could see no But we who lived there saw our street as a world where everybody was uite different from everybody else Man man was mad George was stupid Big Foot was a bully Hat was an adventurer Popo was a philosopher and Morgan was our comedian You want a book that is earnest and enjoyable with the pace being right uick uick well you came to right place This be a collection of vignettes through the eyes of a short pants playing at being a man It s a collection of characters but it also be a description of a place and time it paint a picture real good good My apologies I know I just butchered the Trinidad dialect probably making it sound dumb and clunky but honestly to my mind that is how it read at first Like most books that are written in dialect though with time you catch the rhythm beat and patterns and soon you will find yourself engrossed not just comprehending the words but hearing the earnest voices This is the type of writing that transports the reader using language to introduce unfamiliar culture that can be accomplished in really no other way This book begs you to get to know the people while not judging them to become friendly but never to fall in loveThis book does some amazing work in a short period It is a shallow dive but an enjoyable one I think before the end you not only see the street our narrator grew up on but you can also imagine how the appearance changed for our narrator as he aged The writing and the characters are nothing if not colorful and vivid but they are also brief and thus somewhat static I can not help but think that there is also something of a staleness about the entire neighborhood by the end a loss of hope for most of the inhabitants and yet most of the book is filled with lively activity even if it isn t always pleasant ಅಮ್ಮಾವ್ರ ಗಂಡ residents this derelict corner of Trinidad's capital is a complete world where everybody is uite different from everybody else There's Popo the carpenter who neglects his livelihood to build the thing withou.

Miguel Street review á eBook or Kindle ePUB T a name There's Man man who goes from running for public office to staging his own crucifixion and the dreaded Big Foot the bully with glass tear ducts There's the lovely Mrs Hereira in thrall to her monstrous husband In this tender funny early novel V S Naipaul renders their lives and the legends their n. It s uniue and uniue in Naipaul s work of which I ve read a dozen my favorites including House for Mr Biswas The Loss of El Dorado and Among the Believers Used to teach Miguel Street in community college Freshman English maybe fifteen years often twice a year It never got old to me My teaching was largely aloudreading including my class who were fearful of the accent Once in awhile a student had been there would try to recreate some I find it a comic achievement of the highest order rather like and unlike Faulkner s As I LAy Dying Man Man s dog is a wonderful creation roughly eual to Shakespeare s Crab the clown s dog in Two Gentlemen of Verona I wonder if a film of it is even possible maybe by a Brazilian film maker The humor would be tough to represent visually The brand new truck repaired by the compulsive tinkerer lovely The un named protagonist of Miguel Street wins the scholarship at Oxford But on the way he meets and describes a fascinating array of characters the central one being the ironist and older brother type Hat Then the teacher of Latin Titus Hoyt And the poet who has written nothing How about the crazed Man Man who has trained his dog to defecate And the aforesaid tinkerer mechanic who destroys new cars and trucks his chapter titled The Mechanical Genius There s the fireworks afficianado whose obsession blows up his house in the Pyrotechnicist which begins with the central point of the book A stranger could drive down Miguel Street and just say Slum because he could see no But we who lived there saw our street as a world where everone was uite different from everybody else 63 Vintage 1984 I would use the book as the first of five in my course others including a Shakespeare play a poetry collection and a memoir or non fiction It really got the class off to a great start Of course Naipaul grew into a bit of a zero dissing women authors whoring etc But if we can forgive politicians why not geniuses less 0 minutes ago delete

Miguel Street review á eBook or Kindle ePUB Eighbors construct around them with Dickensian verve and Chekhovian compassionSet during World War II and narrated by an unnamed but precociously observant neighborhood boy Miguel Street is a work of mercurial mood shifts by turns sweetly melancholy and anarchically funny It overflows with life on every pa. Reminds me of Cannery Row by Steinbeck I always love this style of storytelling and the setting was new and familiar to me so it was a great read More Naipaul is definitely in the future reading
