(“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"".
