Getting Stoned With Savages, by J. Maartin Troost

Fantastic narrative non-fiction travel writing. Well, almost travel writing- Troost and his wife lived in Fiji and Vanuatu for a year and a half, and Troost took the time to write about living on Kiribati, in The Sex Lives of Cannibals. He also took the time to travel to outlying islands, and to develop quite a kava habit, a drinkable drug that sounds revolting, but interesting! Funny and insightful- I love the way he writes.
