The Mystic Masseur -- VS Naipaul

A curate's egg; most liked the beginning but lost interest towards the end. One got the impression that the great man did not really like his colourful characters. Even the 'two books for the price of one' format got the thumbs down. An interesting first novel by a man who didn't sound comfortable either in his native or adopted lands.
