9780241969373: Mr Bones: Twenty Stories
Revue de presse :

Plumbing the depths of eccentricity and violence swilling beneath the surface of ordinary American life, Theroux understands, often with devastating effect, how dramas both big and small can produce catastrophic and lasting psychological consequences ( Guardian)

Skilful and unsettling ( Independent)

Twenty delicious tales . . . from the off, this collection had me grinning. Scattered with gems infused with Theroux's international knowledge ( Big Issue)

Quirky, unpredictable fun and pure literary entertainment ( Sunday Sport)

As cool as Somerset Maugham . . . as observant, intuitive, wry, inventive and eloquent as Graham Greene ( Sunday Times)

Theroux is fluent, witty and almost faultlessly able to deliver a satisfying story (Melvyn Bragg)

One of the most accomplished and worldly-wise writers of his generation ( The Times)

Always a terrific teller of tales and conjurer of exotic locales, he writes lean prose that lopes along at a compelling pace ( Sunday Times)

With its unsettling strangeness, precisely drawn characters and geographical sweep, Mr Bones is a psychologically complex, vastly enjoyable and nuanced collection by a writer in complete control of his art ( Financial Times)

There's more than a whiff of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness about these tales, by turns savage, funny, unsettling ( The Times)

Mr Bones is a series of characteristically dark and sharply focused snapshots from the world that Paul Theroux has observed - and ­invented ( New York Times)

Suave and accomplished ( Washington Times)

Mr Bones showcases the author's virtuoso storytelling abilities, as he tells stories of tricky situations, slippery personalities and unsettling motives ( Seattle Times)
