The Imperial Way

Paul Theroux has been here before and has described it memorably in The Great Railway Bazaar. On his revisit, he began in Peshawar, up near the Khyber Pass, full of Afghan refugees and guerrilla warriors; journeyed through Islamabad and Lahore to India and Simla, the Himalayan foothill town of Kipling's stories; through New Delhi and then Agra where the Taj Mahal stands; through the high-country tea plantations of Darjeeling; on to Calcutta; and finally into flooded Chittagong on the Bay of Bengal.

Theroux describes a present day India at once as lovely and forbidding as in The Jewel In The Crown and A Passage To India. The Imperial Way comes to life with Theroux's prose and Steve McCurry's superb, prize-winning photographs.
