My Other Life is a compelling collection of short memoirs that blur the lines between biography and fiction as award-winning writer Paul Theroux imagines what his life would have been like had he made different choices. A writer's epic account of another life, of other choices - of turning fact into extraordinary fiction...'A memoir; a collection of short stories; an assemblage of fables; an anthology of Theroux: a book in which he is everywhere present, as himself and as someone other...Endlessly inventive, beguiling, provocative and insidiously readable' Sunday Telegraph'Evocative, painstaking, comic, even tender, brilliant. Follows the outline of Theroux's life - teaching in Africa and Singapore, prosperity and marriage in rain-blackened London, catastrophe then flight to the Pacific's sunnier shores - each chapter is plotted as a dramatic confrontation' Guardian'A great pleasure and a bit of a tease. Theroux is fluent, witty and almost faultlessly able to deliver a satisfying story' Melvyn Bragg, Literary ReviewAmerican travel writer Paul Theroux is known for the rich descriptions of people and places that is often streaked with his distinctive sense of irony; his novels and collected short stories, The Collected Stories, My Secret History, The Lower River, The Stranger at the Palazzo d'Oro, A Dead Hand, Millroy the Magician, The Elephanta Suite, Saint Jack, The Consul's File, The Family Arsenal, The Mosquito Coast, and his works of non-fiction, including the iconic The Great Railway Bazaar are available from Penguin
