    A classic of modern travel writing, AN AREA OF DARKNESS is Nobel laureate V.S. Naipaul's profound reckoning with his ancestral homeland and an extraordinarily perceptive chronicle of his first encounter with India. Traveveling from thebureaucratic morass of Bombay to the ethereal beauty of Kashmir, from a sacred ice cave in the Himalayas to an abandoned temple near Madras, Naipaul encounters a dizzying cross section of humanity: browbeaten government workers and imperious servants, a suavely self-serving holy man and a deluded American religious seeker. The book also abounds with Naipaul's striking original responses to India's paralyzing caste system, among other issues.
