Inhaltsangabe: In the tradition of political and cultural revelation V.S. Naipaul so brilliantly made his own in Among The Believers, A Turn In The South, his first book about the United States, is a revealing, disturbing, elegiac book about the American South -- from Atlanta to Charleston, Tallahassee to Tuskegee, Nashville to Chapel Hill.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
?Naipaul?s chapters honor the diversity that marks the South.... Conservatives and liberals, whites and blacks, men and women speak for themselves, and reveal the dark side of the story in their own ways? fascinating and revealing.? ? The New Republic
?A Tolstoyan spirit.... The so-called Third World has produced no more brilliant literary artist.? ? John Updike
?Naipaul is a master of English prose.? ? J. M. Coetzee, New York Review of Books
?V. S. Naipaul has a substantial claim as a comic writer.... This humor, conducted throughout with the utmost stylistic quietude, is completely original.? ? Kingsley Amis, The Spectator
?Mr. Naipaul travels with the artist?s eye and ear and his observations are sharply discerning.? ? Evelyn Waugh
?For sheer abundance of talent there can hardly be a writer alive who surpasses V. S. Naipaul. [He is] the world?s writer, a master of language and perception.? ? The New York Times Book Review
