Miguel Street is a novel by V.S. Naipaul. It is considered to be semi-autobiographical, which means there are parts of it that Naipaul took from his own experience. This book takes place in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago during a war. This novel is told from the point of view of an unnamed narrator. In the novel, the narrator tells of many episodes from his own life, all of which took place on Miguel Street, which is located in Port of Spain. There are three other characters: Mr. Popo, the carpenter; B. Wordsworth, a poet; and Man-Man, a prophet. At the end of the novel, the narrator is the only one who is able to leave Trinidad and seek a new life.
