Description
Information
'[Theroux] makes and remakes his own world . . . The smell, sound, sight of his scenes is always strong, even pungent; and, even more, his dialogue is powerfully but also effortlessly accurate'
Sunday Telegraph

'Theroux willingly explores the blighted territory of a failing marriage; the tangled jungle of a mad poet's secret anti-Semitism; the belated sexual guilt of a Hindu . . . A book of many and varied pleasures; to read it is to feel alert, curious, adventurous'
Observer

'Paul Theroux's writing is impeccable and thoughtfully entertaining . . . his artistry is individual, serene, yet also grainy with fierce truths'
The Times

'One needs energy to keep up with the extraordinary, productive restlessness of Paul Theroux . . . [He is] the most gifted, most prodigal writer of his generation'
Jonathan Raban

'You close the book feeling you have read a single big narrative rather than a series of short ones . . . As a short-story writer, he makes a terrific novelist'
