    The Consul's File Kindle ê The Consul's PDF/EPUB ² consul's kindle, file download, The Consul's free, The Consul's File PDFThe new American Consul arrives in Ayer Hitam Malaysia and immediately finds the expats are a mixed bunch Initially I thought Ayer Hitam was going to be a fictional place but it isn't it is a real place in the state of Johor just north of the Singapore borderThe books takes the form of chapter length short stories The are slightly interconnected in that the characters reoccur the key characters are present in almost every chapter but importantly they are told in the order they occur they are linear The closest example I can recall is Narayan's Malgudi stories set in the fictional town of Malgudi Again those stories are stand alone but interconnectedThere is a good variety of stories mostly about people but also a Christmas party visitors the drama society a murder mys

    The Consul's File Kindle ê The Consul's PDF/EPUB ² consul's kindle, file download, The Consul's free, The Consul's File PDFSuperb collection of short stories set in the Malaysian town of Ayer Hitam in the rubber jungles of Johore Back in the 70s Paul Theroux spent a couple of years in the Far East around the time that the American military effort in Vietnam was collapsing in shame and acrimony Theroux was only 36 when he published this book but on this evidence he could have been mentioned in the same breath as Somerset Maugham and Joseph Conrad as a chronicler of the East had he been content to plough this particular furrow But that was never going to be Theroux’s style so footloose was he that he eventually came to be known as t

    The Consul's File Kindle ê The Consul's PDF/EPUB ² consul's kindle, file download, The Consul's free, The Consul's File PDFWow my opinion of this book is improved Not that it was bad before but in the first few stories in this collection I had detected too much of a Graham Greene influence and too many of the stories or ideas for them seemed to be in self conscious homage to Somerset Maugham's Far East storiesBy the time I got than a couple of stories into the collection I began to appreciate the unique qualities of Theorux's writing This is worthy of at least a paper length discussion but Theroux's style is understated and unassuming At first he seems deceptively transparent rather simple and his style is so natural it seems pretty much unadornedBut there is a post Vietnam ethos in these postcolonial tales of the Far East that is anything but simple There is also a unique American literary quality to the writing which sets it apart from the work of Greene and Maugham who despite their personal beliefs

    The Consul's File Kindle ê The Consul's PDF/EPUB ² consul's kindle, file download, The Consul's free, The Consul's File PDFThis is a story book every chapter a different anecdote on South East Asian life as an expat It holds different writing styles horror romance travel satire Each is compelling relaying a deeper message than the story itself It can be read as a portrayal of human character and of a parable of universal dreams and flaws The writing is very fluid and pleasant Theroux doesn't spoon feed you his message the reader is left to draw her own conclusionsI lov

    The Consul's File Kindle ê The Consul's PDF/EPUB ² consul's kindle, file download, The Consul's free, The Consul's File PDFPaul Theroux wrote The Consul's File in 1972 no doubt drawing from his experiences teaching in Singapore in the late 60s The stories are set in Ayer Hitam a remote Malaysian town in the heart of a dwindling rubber and palm plantation region I suspect he chose this area to deflect criticism of people he may have encountered in Singapore that served as models of the characters in the consul's story of people he met there I see this novel with a central character the stand in for the author recounting stories of people he has met in a particular place is one that he would reuse to great effect again in Hotel Honolulu I think this character allowed Theroux to give his impression of SE Asia at that time for example He was what some people called a reactionary he was brutal and blind his fun was beer It had swollen his little body and made him grotesque a fat red man who the memory is tolerable than the experience sat in the C

    The Consul's File Kindle ê The Consul's PDF/EPUB ² consul's kindle, file download, The Consul's free, The Consul's File PDFCannot be compared to the experts in this genre of colonial fiction namely Maugham for short stories and Orwell for capturing so well the atmosphere of the British Raj in Burma Perhaps comparable is Anthony Burgess's Malayan trilogy for covering the same locality and period with it's multi ethnic cast of characters except Theroux's stories do not follow any plot line just a collection of the protagonist's experiences over 2 years as a diplomat based in a small town in 1970s Peninsular MalaysiaThe stories themselves were a mixed bag ranging from the supernatural and mythic to murder mystery and daily life at the expatriate club house Nothing terribly exciting but well crafted short fiction nonetheless suitable for a leisurely read while lounging at the pool of some old colonial style hotel I imagine
