From the Publisher“Theroux has long been the most exciting contemporary practitioner of a literary tradition honed to elegantly crafted terseness by Somerset Maugham and Graham Greene. Always a terrific teller of tales and conjurer of exotic locales, he writes lean prose that lopes along at a compelling pace.”
— Sunday Times (U.K.)
“A masterful and mesmerizing storyteller.”
“There is very little that Paul Theroux cannot fit on to a page. . . . His writing skills are disciplined and muscular, his ear as finely tuned as a musician’s, his eye sharper than any razor. . . .”
