Publisher's Summary

Nobel Prize-winner V. S. Naipaul, one of the world's most acclaimed authors, effortlessly tackles provocative ideas that lesser novelists shy away from and always leaves his audience with something to think about.

Willie Chandran feels as though the life he lives is not his own. When he moves to Berlin, his listlessness washes away in a flood of encouragement from his radically political sister. Inspired, he joins an underground liberation movement in India in an attempt to break the chains shackling the lower castes. But after years of revolution and incarceration, he grows disillusioned and returns to England, still hoping to find his true self.

A powerful tale of the search for identity, Magic Seeds emphatically reminds us why Naipaul is an icon of modern literature.

What the Critics Say

"Naipaul...is a modern master of the multiple ironies of resentment, the claustrophobia of the margins. In a world in which terrorism continually haunts the headlines, Naipaul's work is indispensable." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Read Half a Life first"

    This book completes the story begun in Naipaul's _Half a Life_, and I don't think the book stands very well on its own. It would be best to listen to the first book before tackling this one.
