An Area of DarknessBook - 1995
This text is a semi-autobiographical account of a year V.S. Naipaul spent in India. From his arrival in prohibition-dry Bombay, bearing whisky and cheap brandy, to his departure, Naipaul came to recognize a cultural estrangement from India. It became to him a land of myths, an area of darkness.
