9780141029597: The Last Train to Zona Verde: Overland from Cape Town to Angola

For all Theroux travel writing fans and particularly the legions of lovers of Dark Star Safari and Eastern Star.

     Acclaimed travel writer Paul Theroux resumes the African trip recounted in his brilliant Dark Star Safari, from Cairo to Capetown down the right-hand of Africa. For ten years he longed to return Capetown, and travel up the the left-hand side to Congo. After 50 years of travel and past retirement age, this is the last trip of this kind the author will take, and this is the story his fans have been waiting for.

From the Back Cover:

"Theroux is at his best when he tells [people s] stories, happy and sad . . . Theroux s great mission had always been to transport us beyond that reading chair, to challenge himself and thus, to challenge us." Boston Globe
A decade ago, Paul Theroux s best-selling Dark Star Safari chronicled his epic overland voyage from Cairo to Cape Town, providing an insider s look at modern Africa. Now, with The Last Train to Zona Verde, he returns to discover how both he and Africa have changed in the ensuing years.
Traveling alone, Theroux sets out from Cape Town, going north through South Africa, Namibia, then into Angola, encountering a world increasingly removed from tourists itineraries and the hopes of postcolonial independence movements. After covering nearly 2,500 arduous miles, he cuts short his journey, a decision he chronicles with unsparing honesty in a 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.
"Everything is under scrutiny in Paul Theroux s latest travel book not just the people, landscapes and sociopolitical realities of the countries he visits, but his own motivations for going where he goes . . . His readers can only be grateful." Seattle Times
If this book is proof, age has not slowed Theroux or encouraged him to rest on his achievements . . . Gutsy, alert to Africa's struggles, its injustices and history. San Francisco Chronicle
[AU PHOTO] PAUL THEROUX s renowned travel books include Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, Dark Star Safari, and The Great Railway Bazaar. His acclaimed novels include The Mosquito Coast, Hotel Honolulu, and The Lower River.
