Award winning Paul Theroux has written many iconic shorter pieces of travel writing which have been collected together in the captivating Sunrise with Seamonsters. Sunrise with Seamonsters 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. 'As observant, intuitive, wry, inventive and eloquent as Graham Greene' Sunday Times 'Theroux is one of those damnably good writers for whom dullness is a cardinal sin and who seems unable to put a foot wrong. Certainly the brightest collection of essays to hit the streets in years' Irish Times 'One of the best literary travellers we have' Evening Standard American 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 other non-fiction titles, Riding the Iron Rooster, The Happy Isles of Oceania, The Kingdom by the Sea, The Tao of Travel, Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, The Old Patagonian Express, The Great Railway Bazaar, Dark Star Safari, Fresh-air Fiend, Sir Vidia's Shadow, The Pillars of Hercules, and his novels and collections of short stories, including the James Tait Black Memorial Prize winner The Mosquito Coast are available from Penguin.
