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
