This complex metafictional novel from Paul Theroux features a protagonist who appears to lead many different, separate lives. The only connecting strand is that they all involve the same person. The fictional narrator of these memoirs, a man of many different guises, has reconstructed his past, giving it wit and life, tragedy and pathos, and imposed an order on it through careful editing. Life, it seems, has no apparent plot and so it can seem messier than fiction; sometimes it seems as if our hero is leading many different, separate lives. The only connecting strand is that they all involve the same one person.
