This is one ritual of creation. As I say, this is my only story.
I have encountered Theroux's non-fiction work in "Sunrise with Seamonsters" previously, and this way was my first bite into his fictional works. Paul Theroux manages to express in his clever stories every hue from the most delicate pastel to the intensely garish. The Stranger at the Palazzo D'Oro is intriguing. Definitely recommended. The other stories fared better. It's an uneven collection, but many readers will find some strange sort of solace in these odd, often beautifully rendered, pieces.
Filled with Theroux's typically effortless but devastating descriptions of people and places, The Stranger at the Palazzo d'Oro is a brilliant portrayal of aging and decay, a shocking tale of sensuality in a golden age. The thrill and risk of pursuit and desire mark the accompanying stories of the sexual awakening and rites of passage of a Boston boyhood, the ruin of a writer in Africa, and the bewitchment of a retiree in Hawaii. This is Paul Theroux at his most allusive and wise, writing with a deep understanding of the frailties of men and boys. Rate it . You Rated it .

Although the other stories in this volume eschew the crudely voyeuristic tone of "Palazzo," they, too, are seriously flawed, redeemed only by Mr. Theroux's unerring sense of place and his ability to conjure worlds distant in geography or time ) (T)his volume as a whole has a hasty, self-conscious air to it, a tendency to turn subsidiary characters - particularly the women - into predictable and unsympathetic stereotypes, and a penchant for substituting cheap, sensationalistic set pieces for purposeful, revelatory storytelling. The tone of the stories in The Stranger at the Palazzo d'Oro is clinical at fatalistic. making it difficult for the reader to experience much engagement with the characters. Rather, each narrative is sustained by the suspense inherent in sexual pursuit (perhaps especially when we know it will end miserably) and, oddly, by Theroux's use of stereotype to sketch the more minor players.
