Quotes & Awards

  • “Beneath the deceptive elegance of these stories, land mines lurk, and Theroux detonates them with gusto.”

    O Magazine

  • “Theroux’s work is like no one else’s…A writer sees what he sees, imagines what he imagines. ‘Mr. Bones’ is a series of characteristically dark and sharply focused snapshots from the world that Paul Theroux has observed—and invented.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Theroux has become a master of the form, with a deep capacity to engage, enchant, and unsettle…In the same way he makes exotic locales worth visiting, Theroux inspires you to wonder what you’re overlooking when encountering friends, neighbors, and strangers alike. A versatile, prolific author asserts his preeminence in short fiction with an unassuming brilliance that almost makes you think stories will become popular again.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Rich in the details of exotic places…all are highly entertaining…This excellent new collection allows readers to sample an array of ­Theroux’s most entertaining fiction in short story form; highly recommended.”

    Library Journal

  • One of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2014
  • A New York Times Editor’s Choice
