The Consul's File is a cool and witty sequence of 20 episodes in the life of Ayer Hitam in Malaysia, seen through the eyes of the resident American Consul, whose job is to phase out the Consulate now that the American rubber estates are disappearing.

Through his narration the whole spectrum of life in Malaysia is evoked, from adultery to murder, and from ghost stories to the vagaries of diplomatic politics.

    " i'm a sucker for fiction set in exotic locales. and this one is all about southeastern asia, a place i've never actually been, which makes me like the book even more. nothing especially great happens, plot-wise, but theroux has a knack for atmosphere and setting that makes the whole thing work. "

    " I enjoyed the connected short story format. I am an enthusiastic reader of Theroux's travel books, but dislike most of his novels with the same sort of passion that I love the travelogues. However, I truly enjoyed reading this book. "

    " Wonderfully location piece -- southeast Asia envelopes the novel and is the main character, and the rest is a bit incidental "
