SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER
Acclaimed and beloved travel writer Paul Theroux turns his attention to his own country - America - for the first time in Deep South
For the past fifty years, Paul Theroux has travelled to the far corners of the earth - to China, India, Africa, the Pacific Islands, South America, Russia, and elsewhere - and brought them to life in his cool, exacting prose. In Deep South he turns his gaze to a region much closer to his home.
Travelling through North and South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas, Paul Theroux writes of the stunning landscapes he discovers - the deserts, the mountains, the Mississippi - and above all, the lives of the people he meets.
The South is a place of contradictions. There is the warm, open spirit of the soul food cafes, found in every town, no matter how small. There is the ruined grandeur of numberless ghostly towns, long abandoned by the industries that built them. There are the state gun shows and the close-knit,subtly forlorn tribe of people who attend and run them. Deep in the heart of his native country, Theroux discovers a land more profoundly foreign than anything he has previously experienced.
Rezension
Publisher's description. For the first time, renowned travel writer Paul Theroux turns his penetrating gaze homeward, exploring the extraordinary places and peoples of the American Deep South. From soul food and wide open roads to endemic poverty and simmering racial tension, he journeys to the heart of a vivid and mesmerising world. Penguin
Portrait
Paul Theroux, 1941 in Massachusetts geboren, reiste nach dem Hochschulabschluss 1963 nach Italien und Afrika, wo er als Lehrer arbeitete. 1968 übernahm er für drei Jahre einen Lehrstuhl an der Universität in Singapur. In dieser Zeit schrieb er Kurzgeschichten, Artikel für Zeitungen und verfasste zahlreiche Romane. In den frühen Siebzigerjahren zog er mit seiner Familie nach England und legte preisgekrönte Romane und viele erfolgreiche Reisebücher vor. Heute lebt Paul Theroux in den USA.
Steve McCurry (b.1950) launched his career as a photojournalist when, disguised in native garb, he crossed the Pakistan border into Afghanistan thirty years ago. His remarkable coverage won him the Robert Capa Gold Medal, which is awarded to photographers who exhibit exceptional courage and enterprise. A recipient of an unprecedented four World Press Photo first prizes in a single year, many of McCurry's images have since become modern icons. Famous for his work across Southeast Asia, McCurry s photographs are beautiful, uplifting and affecting. McCurry is a regular contributor to many international journals including National Geographic magazine. He is a member of Magnum Photos.
