Author(s): Paul Theroux
In Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, Paul Theroux retraces the steps he took thirty years ago in the best-selling and hugely acclaimed The Great Railway Bazaar. From the Eurostar in London, he once again sets out on a journey to the East, travelling overland through Eastern Europe, India and Asia. Infused with the changes that have shaped the exterior landscape and enriched with developments to his own perceptions and psychology, Ghost Train to the Eastern Star is an absorbing and beautifully written follow-up to The Great Railway Bazaar. Full of life and impeccably evoked, Ghost Train to the Eastern Star is as rich with incident and local colour as any of Paul Theroux's most loved travel books. First published 2008.
