From Publishers Weekly:

The late author's father-in-law, Douglas Stuart, provides a moving introduction to this collection of essays. Within months of his 40th birthday in 1985, Naipaul died suddenly, while writing a book on Australia. A large part of that final project is included here, a vital work executed with the sensitivity and skill that mark the author's novels ( Fireflies, etc.) and nonfiction. Other pieces describe Shiva's relationship with his famous brother, V. S. Naipaul, 15 years older; tragic upheavals in India and the failures of that country's leaders. Perhaps the most impressive example of Shiva's perceptions and social conscience is found in his essay "The Illusion of the Third World." Quoting definitions from American, British and Australian dictionaries, he forces one to recognize discrepancies in nationalistic views on humans.

Book Description hardcover. Condition: Very Good in Dustjacket. 1st edition. New York. 1987. March 1987. Viking Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Dustjacket. 0670813680. 136 pages. hardcover. Cover: Robert Silverman. FROM THE PUBLISHER - AN UNFINISHED JOURNEY is a posthumous collection of essays by Shiva Naipaul, published by Hamish and Hamilton in 1986. The foreword is written by the author's father-in-law, Douglas Stuart, who creates a short biographical sketch of the author, describing Shiva as a writer who gained in discipline but was painfully slow, even at times spending an entire afternoon trying to finish a sentence. He also asked Naipaul why he had lost the comic tone in his writing, and wrote that Naipaul attributed it to the arresting horror of witnessing the aftermath of the Jonestown Massacre, part of his research for the book BLACK & WHITE. The essays in the collection are in part autobiographical, such as those on Shiva's relationship with his brother V. S. Naipaul, and his experiences in Australia and other countries. The titular essay is the beginning of an unfinished (due to death) travel book about South East Asia. Also included is an essay called The Illusion of the Third World originally commissioned by Channel 4 Television. inventory #7910. Seller Inventory # z7910
