About this book
A compendium of wit, wisdom and travel trips gathered together by Theroux after 50 years on the road. Features his own work, and that of other authors such as Nabokov, Greene, Hemingway and many others.
A compendium of travel writing from a master traveller. Part philosophical guide, part miscellany, part reminiscence, it celebrates fifty years of wandering the globe by collecting the best writing on travel from the books that shaped the author, as a reader and a traveller.
