Books Read in Peace Corps: A House for Mr. Biswas

BiswasIn Peace Corps, back in pre-internet days, I read whatever came to hand. This is one book I really admired. Mr. Biswas’ struggle to find independence from his in-laws and his desire for a home of his own, independent of them, mirrors the struggle of newly independent former colonies. A Great read in Malawi where it was much easier to understand. A House for Mr. Biswas by V.S. Naipaul.
