Winner of the Stanford Dolman Lifetime Contribution to Travel Writing Award 2020
The Mosquito Coast - winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the Stanford Dolman Lifetime Contribution to Travel Writing Award - is a breathtaking novel about fanaticism and a futile search for utopia from bestseller Paul Theroux.
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.
