The Mosquito Coast

The Mosquito Coast

Theroux Paul

The Mosquito Coast - winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize - is a breathtaking novel about fanaticism and a futile search for utopia from bestseller Paul Theroux. Published as a Penguin Essential for the first time.

Allie Fox is going to re-create the world. Abominating the cops, crooks, junkies and scavengers of modern America, he abandons civilisation and takes the family to live in the Honduran jungle. There his tortured, messianic genius keeps them alive, his hoarse tirades harrying them through a diseased and dirty Eden towards unimaginable darkness. "Stunning...exciting, intelligent, meticulously realised, artful." (Victoria Glendinning, Sunday Times). "An epic of paranoid obsession that swirls the reader headlong to deposit him on a black mudbank of horror." (Christopher Wordsworth, Guardian). "Magnificently stimulating and exciting." (Anthony Burgess).
