The Tao of Travel

Paul Theroux

This is a compendium of travel writing from a master traveller Paul Theroux who celebrates fifty years of wandering the globe by collecting the best writing on travel from the books that shaped him, as a reader and a traveller. Part philosophical guide, part miscellany, part reminiscence, The Tao of Travel enumerates ‘The Contents of Some Travellers’ Bags' and exposes ‘Writers Who Wrote About Places They Never Visited’; tracks extreme journeys in ‘Travel As An Ordeal’ and highlights some of ‘Travellers’ Favourite Places'. Excerpts from the best of Theroux’s own work are interspersed with selections from travellers both familiar and unexpected, including Vladimir Nabokov, Henry David Thoreau, Graham Greene, Ernest Hemingway and more. The Tao of Travel is a unique tribute to the pleasures and pains of travel in its golden age.
