Naipaul, V. S. 1932-

The mimic men / V.S. Naipaul. - 1st Vintage International ed. - London : Picador, 2011. - ix, 274 p. ; 20 cm.

Born of Indian heritage, raised in the British-dependent Caribbean island of Isabella, and educated in England, forty-year-old Ralph Singh has spent a lifetime struggling against the torment of cultural displacement. Now in exile from his native country, he has taken up residence in a London suburb, where he is writing his memoirs. His memories lead him to recognize the cultural paradoxes and tainted fantasies of his colonial childhood and later life: his attempts to fit in at school, his short-lived marriage to an ostentatious white woman.
