About This Item
A collection of linked short stories drawing on the author's childhood memories of wartime Trinidad and Tobago. A magnet to the poets, philosophers, teachers, troubadours and misfits who people Port of Spain, Miguel Street is a place where tales of glory and debauchery vie with declarations of love and anger, where neighborhood dramas are scrutinized and wisdom doled out to one and all. The stories all share the same boy narrator and the various characters reappear in multiple stories, but each story focuses on a different single character.
Miguel Street is a semi-autobiographical novel by V. S. Naipaul set in wartime Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. Naipaul wrote it while employed at the BBC using a BBC typewriter and "rustle-free paper. " Miguel Street won the 1961 Somerset Maugham Award.
