Between Father and Son: Family Letters

V. S. Naipaul (Knopf, 2000)

This collection of letters between Nobel Prize-winning author V. S. Naipaul and his father and sister features a photobooth photo of Naipaul, with tell-tale curtain backdrop, as its cover. Harder to see are the overlaid remnants of writing and other marks from an airmail letter that evoke a long history of international correspondence.
