The Tao of Travel
'Pure entertainment' Financial Times
'A real treat for anyone on the move' Independent
One of our finest travel writers presents a literary traveller's handbook
After fifty years of wandering the globe, Paul Theroux collects 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 examines 'The Contents of Some Travellers' Bags' and exposes 'Writers Who Wrote About Places They Never Visited'. It tracks extreme journeys in 'Travel As An Ordeal' and highlights some of 'Travellers' Favourite Places'.
Excerpts from the best of Theroux's own work nestle among selections from travellers both familiar and unexpected, such as Vladimir Nabokov, Samuel Johnson, Mark Twain, Bruce Chatwin, Eudora Welty, Anton Chekhov, Peter Matthiessen and Ernest Hemingway.
A brilliant tribute to the pleasures and horrors of travel in its golden age, The Tao of Travel is your ticket to fabulous and forgotten worlds. Hurry, departing soon.
'Studded with gems it will enliven any journey'
