Paul Theroux

Celebrated travel writer Paul Theroux first went to Africa as a 22-year-old Peace Corps volunteer, and the pull of the continent never left him. In The Last Train to Zona Verde: My Ultimate African Safari, he tells what it was like to return, after 50 years on the road, to explore the little-traveled territory of western Africa and to take stock both of the place and of himself.
