Great Railway Bazaar (Paperback)
Email or call for price.
In this unique and luminous work that spent two months on The New York Times bestseller list, award-winning author and railroad-lover Paul Theroux takes us aboard the world's greatest trains -- the Orient Express, the Khyber Pass Local, the Golden Arrow, the Mandalay Express -- on an odyssey from London through Europe and Asia, across the frozen vastness of Siberia. And his eye misses no wonder of landscape or character: con men, holy men, beggars, spies, smugglers, soldiers, aristocrats, and artists. From mystical temples to sensual brothels, Theroux savors the delights of travel, as Asia becomes a bazaar of all cultures.
