|Abstract: ||An examination of V.S. Naipaul's 1963 novel 'Mr Stone and the Knights Companion' which Naipaul later described as 'fraudulent' because of the suppression of his personal point of view. It is compared to other works of the time such as Evelyn Waugh's 'The Loved One', and to Naipaul's later novels 'Half a Life' and 'Magic Seeds', which he has stated were written in some sense as a corrective to the earlier novel.|
