Paul Edward Theroux (born 1941) is an American travel writer and novelist, whose best-known work is The Great Railway Bazaar (1975). He has published numerous works of fiction, some of which were adapted as feature films. He was awarded the 1981 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for his novel The Mosquito Coast, which was adapted for the 1986 movie of the same name.
Here, Theroux launches one of his most exotic and tantalizing adventures, as he kayaks the shimmering Pacific from island to island, exploring its surfy coasts and blue lagoons, and taking up residence to discover the secrets of these happy isles.
