The Great Railway Bazaar, by Paul Theroux: SF Travel Book Club August Meeting

  • Aug 4, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Books, Inc.

Join the San Francisco Travel Book Club on Monday, August 4th when we will discuss The Great Railway Bazaar, by Paul Theroux

Description from
First published more than thirty years ago, Paul Theroux's strange, unique, and hugely entertaining railway odyssey has become a modern classic of travel literature. Here Theroux recounts his early adventures on an unusual grand continental tour. Asia's fabled trains -- the Orient Express, the Khyber Pass Local, the Frontier Mail, the Golden Arrow to Kuala Lumpur, the Mandalay Express, the Trans-Siberian Express -- are the stars of a journey that takes him on a loop eastbound from London's Victoria Station to Tokyo Central, then back from Japan on the Trans-Siberian. Brimming with Theroux's signature humor and wry observations, this engrossing chronicle is essential reading for both the ardent adventurer and the armchair traveler

    What a turnout! 14 people are a lot to manage, for the store and facilitator.

      We didn't expect as many, based on Meetup RSVP's. Some people responded to the store's flyer, some to the Chronicle notice (?). Thanks for participating!

    SO sorry that I'm going to have to miss this after all. Woke up yesterday with a terrible cold which has only gotten worse. Will try to make it next time!
