Paul Theroux’s travel tales have thrilled millions of intrepid readers. Now, To The Ends Of The Earth offers Theroux’s own selection of his best travel writing- the intriguing people and vivid landscapes, shocking encounters and narrow escapes. In our journeys with Theroux we spend a fascinating evening at home with Jorge Luis Borges in Buenos Aires and take a death-defying flight from Urumchi to Lanzhou, China. Theroux treats us to a Beijing banquet of forbidden delicacies and takes us to the edge of the world, where the Great Wall crumbles into the Gobi Desert. We explore Latin America, from the northern border of Laredo to the barren tip of Patagonia, stopping along the way at a wild soccer match in El Salvador. We join Theroux on a train ride into the heart of 1973 Vietnam, spend a frozen Christmas on the Trans-Siberian Railway, and explore England’s craggy seaside. With Theroux’s penetrating vision and impeccable style, To The Ends Of The Earth is better than being there.
