Sunrise with Seamonsters Author:Paul Theroux The journeys of Paul Theroux take place not only in exotic, unexpected places of the world but in the thoughts, reading, and emotions of the writer himself. A gathering of people, places, and ideas in fifty glittering pieces of gold.
About 50 short essays written between 1964 to 1984. One of the better ones was about travelling through Afghanistan in the 1970s. Only Theroux could convince you that maybe Afghanistan is better off now (2013) than it was 40 years ago.
