About the Book

Headhunters on My Doorstep: A True Treasure Island Ghost Story

J. Maarten Troost, bestselling author of THE SEX LIVES OF CANNIBALS and “this generation’s answer to Bill Bryson,” (BookPage) recounts his latest hilarious misadventures in the South Pacific following in the footsteps of an unlikely idol, Robert Louis Stevenson. Somewhere between the bizarre realities of the present-day South Seas and his exploration of the islands as Stevenson saw them, Troost gradually re-awakens to the beauty of life, managing an honest look at addiction and human nature, without self-pity and without ever losing his sense of humor.
