  • Book
Genre

J. Maarten Troost ditches his Washington, D.C., job and heads to Vanuatu, where he indulges in the local intoxicant kava, has run-ins with Mother Nature, and struggles to find nirvana.

Fantasy Island?
He discovers a foot-long, venomous, 300-leg centipede — ”the Darth Vader of the insect world.”

Upshot
As in his last book, The Sex Lives of Cannibals, Troost is a funny, candid, and down-to-earth travel companion.
