For the past 50 years, Paul Theroux has travelled to the far corners of the Earth - to China, Africa, the Pacific Islands, Russia, and elsewhere.
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, he writes of the stunning landscapes he discovers - the deserts, the mountains, the Mississippi - and, above all, the lives of the people he meets.
"Still one of the best literary travellers we have." (
"His ability to sum up a people or a city in a few lines is undiminished." ( Daily Telegraph)
"Theroux's work remains the standard by which other travel writing must be judged." ( Observer)
