9780140249804: The Great Railway Bazaar: By Train Through Asia

The Direct-Orient Express, the Khyber Pass Local, the Delhi Mail from Jaipur, the Golden Arrow to Kuala Lumpur and the Trans-Siberian Express are just a few of the evocative names that fill this, the story of Paul Theroux's epic journey by rail through India and Asia. It is a journey on which he encounters a huge variety of places and people, foods, faiths and cultures, and which has at its heart an enduring fascination with trains and railways.
