Collected here for the first time, Theroux's tales are funny, sardonic, sensuous and evocative, streaked with terror and cruelty. All glow with Theroux's intelligence, elegance and ironic wit; with his marvelous sense of place; and with his tragi-comic vision. Full of suspense and the unexpected, this collection shows Theroux, the secret writer, as a master of the form.
