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 ).
