A dark and bitingly humorous collection of short stories from the “brilliantly evocative” () Paul Theroux
In this new collection of short stories, acclaimed author Paul Theroux explores the tenuous leadership of the elite and the surprising revenge of the overlooked. He shows us humanity possessed, consumed by its own desire and compulsion, always with his carefully honed eye for detail and the subtle idiosyncrasies that bring his characters to life. Searing, dark, and sure to unsettle, is a stunning new display of Paul Theroux’s “fluent, faintly sinister powers of vision and imagination” (John Updike, ).
