Description

The Great Railway Bazaar is Paul Theroux’s classic and much-loved homage to train travel.

The Orient Express; The Khyber Pass Local; the Delhi Mail from Jaipur; the Golden Arrow of Kuala; the Trans-Siberian Express; these are just some of the trains steaming through Paul Theroux’s epic rail journey from London across Europe through India and Asia. This was a trip of discovery made in the mid-seventies, a time before the West had embraced the places, peoples, food, faiths and cultures of the East. For us now, as much as for Theroux then, to visit the lands of The Great Railway Bazaar is an encounter with all that is truly foreign and exotic – and with what we have since lost.

Praise for Paul Theroux:

‘Theroux’s work remains the standard by which other travel writing must be judged’ Observer

‘One needs energy to keep up with the extraordinary, productive restlessness of Paul Theroux … [He is] the most gifted, most prodigal writer of his generation’Jonathan Raban

‘Always a terrific teller of tales and conjurer of exotic locales, he writes lean prose that lopes along at a compelling pace’Sunday Times

Paul Theroux’s books include Dark Star SafariGhost Train to the Eastern StarRiding the Iron RoosterThe Great Railway Bazaar, The Elephanta SuiteA Dead Hand, The Tao of Travel and The Lower RiverThe Mosquito Coast and Dr Slaughter have both been made into successful films. Paul Theroux divides his time between Cape Cod and the Hawaiian islands.
