Review:

" One of the few contemporary writers of whom we can speak in terms of greatness." - Mel Gussow, "Newsday"
" Miguel Street is the Bowery, the Tenderloin, and the Catfish Row of Trinidad' s Port of Spain- its citizens a loony multitude whose knavery often rises from real kinship with pathos and tragedy. . . . Naipaul is at his best in these swift caricatures of human depravity." - "San Francisco Chronicle"
" Amusing and poignant. . . . Excellent reading." - "Chicago Tribune"
" Naipaul does not tell stories. By some miraculous sleight-of-hand he takes you to Port of Spain and shows you the rich, bawdy, consequential lives of the Trinidadians, as though there were no intervening veil of words. . . . I rather suspect the mantle of Chekhov has fallen on Mr. Naipaul' s shoulders." - Robert Payne, "Saturday Review"
