A Writer's People: Ways of Looking and Feeling is a non-fiction book by V. S. Naipaul, first published in 2007, in which Naipaul discusses how the work of other writers has affected his own writing. The book attracted criticism in British literary circles for its uncharitable treatment of several notable authors, and in particular of Anthony Powell's novel-sequence A Dance to the Music of Time, especially since Powell was an old friend of Naipaul's.[1]
