A What a fantastic book! Theroux writes of his train journey from Peshawar, Pakistan, through India, ending at Bangledesh. He has such an aware eye and sees travel, people, and the experiences in such an interesting manner. I love all his travel books. The first 25 or 30 pages are him writing about this trip- the latter portion of the book is comprised of photographs by Steve Curry of people and places scene on a train journey like this.
Fascinating. Highly recommended for travelers, fans of India, Bangledesh, and Pakistan, and photography lovers.
