Description
Information
A WRITER'S EPIC ACCOUNT OF ANOTHER LIFE, OF OTHER CHOICES - OF TURNING FACT INTO EXTRAORDINARY FICTION . . .

'A memoir; a collection of short stories; an assemblage of fables; an anthology of Theroux: a book in which he is everywhere present, as himself and as someone other . . . Endlessly inventive, beguiling, provocative and insidiously readable'
Sunday Telegraph

'Evocative, painstaking, comic, even tender, brilliant. Follows the outline of Theroux's life – teaching in Africa and Singapore, prosperity and marriage in rain-blackened London, catastrophe then flight to the Pacific's sunnier shores – each chapter is plotted as a dramatic confrontation'
Guardian

'A great pleasure and a bit of a tease. Theroux is fluent, witty and almost faultlessly able to deliver a satisfying story'
Melvyn Bragg, Literary Review
