Read full description of the books:
A decade ago, Paul Theroux’s bestselling Dark Star Safari chronicled his epic overland voyage from Cairo to Cape Town, providing an insider’s look at modern Africa combined with an insightful meditation that uncovered the "secret sweetness, the hidden vitality, and the long-patient hope that lies just below the surface" of the place (Rocky Mountain News). In the spirit of his earlier return to China, he now returns to discover how Africa – and he – have changed in the ensuring years. Though he begins this trip where he finished his last, in The Last Train to Zona Verde, this time Theroux is journeying through West Africa for the first time. From South Africa to Namibia to Botswana, covering nearly 2,500 miles before he is forced to give up what is to be his final foreign trip in a witty and unsparing chapter titled "What Am I Doing Here?"
Vivid, witty, and beautifully evocative, The Last Train to Zona Verde is a fitting final African adventure from the writer whose gimlet eye and effortless prose have brought the world to generations of readers.
