"Theroux serves as both the camera and the eye, and both the details and the illusions are developed with brilliance." Time Magazine
Sunrise with Sea Monsters is Paul Theroux's immensely entertaining collection of his shorter writings, ranging from sketches to critical essays. Each piece marks a new 'confrontation with the world' and throws new light on the political and social climate of diverse cultures such as those of New York, Singapore, Ireland and Malawi. Others give a lively portrayal of the people Theroux has met or books and landscapes which have inspired him.
Above all, this is a fascinating perspective on two decades of travelling, writing and living away from home.
