Reviews

Praise for

GETTING STONED WITH SAVAGES



"One of Troost's greatest successes is that he's not reporting, exactly, not writing as a journalist would, but simply living his life in a faraway place and writing about it."
--New York Times

"Troost manages to relate his misadventures in an irreverently funny style . . . this makes for a good beach read on your own vacation."
--Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Praise for The Sex Lives of Cannibals

"A comic masterwork of travel writing" --Publishers Weekly

"Troost has a command of place and narrative that puts him in the company of some of today's best travel writers." --Elle
