book – Mosquito Coast, Paul Theroux

I have read all of Theroux’s travel books & most of his novels.

Finally got around to his 1982 novel which was made into a movie starring Harrison Ford.

Great book! Good movie!

The extreme philosophy of Ford’s character — a man who so hates American life that he moves his family to the jungles of Central America — is still fascinating today.

It reminds me of another terrific case study: Elizabeth Gilbert’s biography of Eustace Conway, The Last American Man.
