Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 190 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Dark Star Safari is Paul Theroux s now classic account of a journey from Cairo to Cape Town. Travelling across bush and desert, down rivers and across lakes, and through country after country, Theroux visits some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth, and some of the most dangerous. It is a journey of discovery and of rediscovery -- of the unknown and the unexpected, but also of people and places he knew as a young and optimistic teacher forty years before. Safari in Swahili simply means journey , and this is the ultimate safari. It is Theroux in his element -- a trip where chance encounter is everything, where departure and arrival times are an irrelevance, and where contentment can be found balancing on the top of a truck in the middle of nowhere. 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 Safari, Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, Riding the Iron Rooster, The Great Railway Bazaar, The Elephanta Suite, A Dead Hand, The Tao of Travel and The Lower River. The Mosquito Coast and Dr Slaughter have both been made into successful films. Paul Theroux divides his time between Cape Cod and the Hawaiian islands. Bookseller Inventory # APG9780140281118
