Publisher's Summary

A final African adventure from the writer whose gimlet eye and effortless prose have brought the world to generations of readers.

Journeying alone, in what he feels will be his last African journey, Paul Theroux encounters a world increasingly removed from both the itineraries of tourists and the hopes of post-colonial independence movements. Having travelled down the right-hand side of Africa in Dark Star Safari, he sets out this time from Cape Town, heading northwards up the left-hand side, through South Africa and Namibia, to Botswana, heading for the Congo, in search of the end of the line.

Critic Reviews

"Always a terrific teller of tales and conjurer of exotic locales, he writes lean prose that lopes along at a compelling pace" ( Sunday Times)
"His ability to sum up a city or a people in a few lines is undiminished" ( Daily Telegraph)
