The Collected Short Novels

Paul Theroux is renowned for the range of his imaginative vision. In this collection of short novels which includes an early rarity and a recent, previously unpublished work - we encounter the full breadth of his fictional world: from a pair of post-adolescent malcontents hiding from their future to a vulnerable, aging stripper and single mom who finds God; from a soulless American lawyer who forgoes US citizenship for the sake of profit to a beautiful young academic who works as a researcher by day and an escort by night; and from a motley band of makeshift criminals to a set of identical twins fated to orchestrate their own self-destruction.

In London and Singapore, Puerto Rico, Massachusetts and Hawaii, Theroux's characters struggle with their intermediate, and often cruel destinies. Compulsively readable, full of tension and menace and with brilliant plot twists, this collection spanning the whole of Paul Theroux's career reaffirms his position as one of our great storytellers.
