Kirk Meighoo published on

Farrukh Dhondy, VS Naipaul, and CLR James Shape the World after the End of Colonialism 

The pioneering British-Parsi writer and political activist, Farrukh Dhondy, speaks about his political and writing career, the impact of the Trinidadian Marxist activist and writer CLR James, Nobel Laureate VS Naipaul, and working at the highest levels of the very different British and Indian arts and film industry. In this context, the extent and limits of globalisation, nationalism, and capitalism are also discussed. 

A great discussion with some genuinely new information about Naipaul's view of his controversial biography, and CLR James's role in helping Dhondy find his calling as a writer of international importance.
