Description
Information
'Nothing on the shelf has quite prepared the reader for My Secret History ... Parent saunters into the book aged fifteen, shouldering a .22 Mossberg rifle as earlier, more innocent American heroes used to tote a fishing pole. In his pocket is a paperback translation of Dante's Inferno ... He is a creature of naked and unquenchable ego, greedy for sex, money, experience, another life ... Wickedly addictive' - Jonathan Raban in the Observer'Theroux's divided man may not win any popularity contests, but he is the author's best creation, a character who is honest enough to know that he wants it both ways: to be the lover and also the solitary observer who betrays his loves by turning them into stories' - Time'This is Theroux's best fiction to date: a doubled, Janus-faced novel that combines the surfaces of memoir and travelogue with cunning fiction. Andre's ... secret life ... is shown operating in Boston, across Africa, in London, Russia and India
