Teeming with idiosyncratic characters who live in and around Miguel Street, it evokes 'living theatre' through its detailed observations of these inhabitants, their exploits and their fruitless ambitions.

A loosely connected set of stories of the inhabitants of a street in Trinidad, some funny, some sad, all very good. The characters reappear in the stories so it isn't a short story collections. I believe this was my first Naipaul read and I enjoyed it very much.

Amusing portraits of the characteristic inhabitants of a street in a poor neighbourhood on Trinidad, seen through the eyes of the young author. Not spectacular in contents and neither in style. The storylines become predictable at about twothirds of the book. ( )

I know it's not very wise to compare books, but this time I must.

I read Mahfouz's Arabian Nights and Days a week ago, and didn't like it. I thought it was not diverse, not impressionable, not deep. But I realized on reading Miguel Street, that Naipaul tried to use the technique Mahfouz didn't quite ace. Naipaul introduced a few characters briefly and spent the rest of the time delving into their character traits, their life stories etc in a very enchanting way. I liked the little touches of culture: the way in which the Trinidadians speak, the use of calypsos that fossilize and somewhat laugh at scandals. There was extensive though subtle social commentary on the plight of Trinidadians, on their complexes towards America, and their impressions of the rest of the world. You could also see the poor, their comparisons with the middle-class, their daily struggles with bearing children, raising them, domestic violence, war, madness, laughter, education etc.

Yes, generally I like deeper books, but for what it's worth, if I compare him with all my recent reads: Anita Desai, Ngugi, Mahfouz of course, I think he stands out. ( )
