Inhaltsangabe: "The Old Patagonian Express" tells of Paul Theroux's train journey down the length of North and South America. Beginning on Boston's subway, he depicts a voyage from ice-bound Massachusetts to the arid plateau of Argentina's most southerly tip, via pretty Central American towns and the ancient Incan city of Macchu Pichu. Shivering and sweating by turns as the temperature and altitude rise and plummet, he describes the people he encounters - thrown in with the tedious, and unavoidable, Mr Thornberry in Limon and reading to the legendary blind writer, Jorge Luis Borges, in Buenos Aires. Witty, sharply observed and beautifully written, this is a richly evocative account of travelling to 'the end of the line'.
Inhaltsangabe: The "old Patagonian Express" was the last train Paul Theroux took in his journey from Boston to Patagonia. Some of the trains were superb, but most were deplorable and the journey was one of contrasts in people, in temperature, in scenery, in altitude, and in attitude. The people, extraordinary, eccentric, replusive, individualistic: the appalling Mr Thornberry, the bogus priest in Cali, and - very different - their blind writer Borges in Buenos Aires.
