    Sunrise with Seamonsters By Paul Theroux


    A young Paul Theroux with all the makings of an important writer but too distracted by his own image of self importance.

    Paul Theroux has recently become one of my favorite authors It started a few months ago when I read his book Riding the Iron Rooster I picked up this book in a thrift store for fifty cents, not knowing what a gem it was It sat amongst my cluttered shelves for several years before I actually read it, not having anything else to read and being mildly intrigued And what a trip it was I had stumbled upon one of the best travel writers of the 20th century.This is what led me to his anthology Sunrise [...]

    I have passively avoided Paul Theroux for years Not for any reason, just that his books seemed like such an obvious choice Also, I have always invented a false rivalry between Theroux and Bruce Chatwin, a similarly big hit commercial travel writer who also wrote prolifically for magazines I had such a soft spot for Chatwin and his strangely debonair lifestyle that I couldn t imagine falling for Theroux the same way Theroux s books were commercial, I felt, never having read them They always show [...]

    Long long ago, I used to enjoy Paul Theroux And then I chose not to read him and others who view the world as through a film of scum He is, undeniably, among those living authors whose works can be classified as Literature Yet, like many such of these times, or, actually of a certain chunk of history, he manages, mostly, to leave one feeling distinctly soiled, leaves that which he writes about, tainted.It was a random pick when I was in a bit of a hurry, that left me reading Sunrise with Seamons [...]

    This is a wonderfully varied collection of essays, I suppose Pieces Theroux wrote to pay the bills over a period of 20 years, 1964 84 They originally appeared in publications ranging from The Christian Science Monitor to The New York Times to The Telegraph Magazine and a whole lot in between.They show what a versatile writer he is and how his writing developed in that time Some pieces are classic Theroux observations of place and people, scene and season I will never tire of these Others offer [...]

    A nice collection of essays from the 70 s and 80 s mostly on autobiographical There are a few book reviews which are so good it makes me want to read what he is recommending Pritchett and Naipaul His travel writing is where Theroux really shines I read this over the course of a week of air travel and airport lounging I feel inspired to take my Google and Yelp reviews to a new level I am currently stuck in the lobby of a Hilton Garden Inn that is hours overdue for having rooms ready My inner Ther [...]

    Uneven but overall satisfying This group of essays whetted my interest enough that I ll pick up some other of his writings.

    This book is absolutely a random favourite I found this book lying unnoticed during a University free shop, and whoever left this book I must thank him her for it is an absolute beauty in terms of the perspective which is termed Retro The articles in the book just take you back into the 70 s and 80 s when the world and it s countries were a different scenario all together The author and his travel experience just pumps you with exuberance and makes you realize that there was definitely a Vintage [...]

    This is the first I have read by PT He is a really good writer It is remarkable how clearly he writes even while discussing the shockingly personal and almost a stream of consciousness At the end of each piece I felt that I really knew Paul, what sort of man he is and what motivates him Some of the pieces involve current events from decades ago I lack so much context that I couldn t enjoy them as much as I am sure others have Mostly though, he writes about characters in his life, literature, and [...]

    Mais um livro extraordin rio do Paul Theroux Com o subt tulo Travels and Discoveries, o livro uma colect nea de textos escritos entre 1964 e 1984, de ndole e tem tica diversa, mas que, na maior parte das vezes, vai parar s viagens passe o ox moro Alguns dos textos, nomeadamente os que se prendem com os caminhos de ferro e viagens de comboio, est o entre a melhor prosa que j li do autor.

    One of those books that s been sitting on my shelf for a number of years that I ve barely touched Theroux s accounts of his travels in Afghanistan and Malawi just to name a couple in the 1970s provide exciting glimpses of Asia and Africa during this period Funny how you can get the travel bug from tales of dictatorial regimes and third world chaos.

    These essays were written in the 70s and 80s and are on a wide variety of subjects, all with Theroux s distinctive take on things I find his analytical observations and sometimes prickly opinions make for engaging reading I almost always get a take on something that I hadn t had before And I d say you have to already know and like Theroux to appreciate this book.

    I ve not read every last essay in this book, but it is a wonderful collection of Theroux ness in bite sized bits Of course, as I am beset by nostalsia it is painful to read about things as they were onl 30 40 years ago I remember a recent interview in which he regretfully reminised about once saying he would have been happy to retire to Pakistan.

    An entertaining mixed bag of essays Gave me some ideas of future books to read, and made me think some thoughts about writing, photography, travel, and trains Also I am now jealous of Paul Theroux s family Thanks, Paul.

    I ve read and loved several of his short stories and couldn t wait to read his early travel writing and Peace Corps experiences, but I just couldn t get into these essays Maybe I ll try again later

    Pedro L. Fragoso
    Early Theroux, already extremely worth Loved the book reviews and the texts about authors, will explore some early last century classics following this Tells the origin of the title for The Great Railway Bazaar.

    Well written, but a bit flat This is a collection of essays so it s not a page turner.

    An interesting collection of essays, some dating as far back as the 1960s that provide the reader with glimpses of a vanishing world

    A collection of writing that often makes me feel that if I could be an author, I d like to be able to write like this

    early paul theroux, has his peace corp times here too.

    good travel book with much about other books and authors great

    Catrien Deys
    It is always a shame to finish one of this author s book, fortunately he wrote a lot and still does and in this collection he reviews other writers that so become must reads too.
