The Mosquito Coast

by Paul Theroux

Part of the Penguin Essentials Series

eBooks of the Month Modern and Contemporary Fiction

The Mosquito Coast Synopsis

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.
