Dark Star Safari

Theroux sets his sights on Africa in his latest travelogue. By means of local buses, cattle trucks, hitched rides, trains and canoes, Theroux makes his way across the length of the continent. Revisiting this land of his youth -- he worked there in the 1960s -- on the eve of his 60th birthday, Theroux finds a land more decrepit and downtrodden than when he left. Although it is a sobering look at modern Africa (and he has very little good to say about tourists), Theroux maintains his trademark wit as he recounts meetings with missionaries, aid workers, tourists and natives.

Author: Paul Theroux

NHA Staff Recommendation:
"An absolute odyssey of one man’s journey from the top to the bottom of Africa, using only local transportation. Paul Theroux is a legendary travel writer already, but with my love for Africa, this book stands out!" - Rick Guthke
