Miguel Street review ☆ 3 A stranger could drive through Miguel Street and just say 'Slum' because he could see no But to its residents this derelict corner of Trinidad's capital is a complete world where everybody is uite different from everybody else There's Popo the carpenter who neglects his livelihood to build the thing withou. A stranger could drive through Miguel Street and just say Slum because he could see no But we who lived there saw our street as a world where everybody was uite different from everybody else Man man was mad George was stupid Big Foot was a bully Hat was an adventurer Popo was a philosopher and Morgan was our comedian You want a book that is earnest and enjoyable with the pace being right uick uick well you came to right place This be a collection of vignettes through the eyes of a short pants playing at being a man It s a collection of characters but it also be a description of a place and time it paint a picture real good good My apologies I know I just butchered the Trinidad dialect probably making it sound dumb and clunky but honestly to my mind that is how it read at first Like most books that are written in dialect though with time you catch the rhythm beat and patterns and soon you will find yourself engrossed not just comprehending the words but hearing the earnest voices This is the type of writing that transports the reader using language to introduce unfamiliar culture that can be accomplished in really no other way This book begs you to get to know the people while not judging them to become friendly but never to fall in loveThis book does some amazing work in a short period It is a shallow dive but an enjoyable one I think before the end you not only see the street our narrator grew up on but you can also imagine how the appearance changed for our narrator as he aged The writing and the characters are nothing if not colorful and vivid but they are also brief and thus somewhat static I can not help but think that there is also something of a staleness about the entire neighborhood by the end a loss of hope for most of the inhabitants and yet most of the book is filled with lively activity even if it isn t always pleasant

review Miguel Street

Miguel Street review ☆ 3 T a name There's Man man who goes from running for public office to staging his own crucifixion and the dreaded Big Foot the bully with glass tear ducts There's the lovely Mrs Hereira in thrall to her monstrous husband In this tender funny early novel V S Naipaul renders their lives and the legends their n. Miguel Street probably ranks as the most poignant work of art I have ever read stirring inside of me emotions that no piece of literature has ever had the power of doing From the narrator s perspective we are introduced to every character in his vicinity portraying the diversity and the interaction between them From banter to jokes laughs and sorrow intellectual conversations and heated arguments this is a community within Trinidad where everything that happens in Miguel Street is nothing but the world for each and every one of the characters It is a place where we hurt and laugh but when we leave at the end with the character tired by the pain and the inability of every character to fulfill his or her dream it remains place that creates a nostalgia that makes us want to return to those dilapidated buildings and those forgotten roads that the government and the upper class may prefer to ignore as belonging to some slum that has no particular importance whatsoever For those of us that read Miguel Street we know better
