"Travel writing at its best."

THE HOUSTON POST

Author and travel writer Paul Theroux does what no one else can: he travels to the isolated, unusual, and fascinating spots of the world, and creates an elegy to them that makes readers feel they are traveling with him. Evocative, breathtaking, intriguing, here is the armchair traveler's guide to the sites of the world he makes us feel we know.

Synopsis:

The noted writer's own selection of his best travel pieces reintroduces readers to a sultan in Malaysia, mourners in a Chinese cemetery in Singapore, nudists in Corsica, war-stricken villagers in Vietnam, and others around the world. Reprint. NYT.
