Amazon.com description: Product Description:

A sparkling and darkly humorous collection of short stories by bestselling novelist and travel writer Paul Theroux.

     A family watches, horrified, as their patriarch transforms into the wise-­cracking lead of an old-­timey minstrel show. An art collector gleefully destroys his most valuable pieces. A young artist devotes himself to a wealthy, malicious gossip, knowing that it's just a matter of time before she turns on him.
     In this new collection of short stories, Paul Theroux explores the tenuous leadership of the elite and the surprising revenge of the overlooked. He shows us humanity possessed, consumed by its own desires, always with his carefully honed eye and the subtle idiosyncrasies that bring his characters to life.
