Fresh Air Fiend by Paul Theroux

Book cover for Fresh Air Fiend
$6.45  
Theroux's first collection of essays and articles devoted entirely to travel writing. It touches down on five continents and floats through most seas in between to deliver a literary adventure of the first order, with the incomparable Theroux as a guide. From the crisp quiet of a solitary week spent in the snowbound Maine woods to the expectant chaos of Hong Kong on the eve of the Hand-over, Theroux demonstrates how the traveling life and the writing life are intimately connected. His journeys in remote hinterlands and crowded foreign capitals provide the necessary perspective to "become a stranger" in order to discover the self.
