For the past 50 years, Paul Theroux has travelled to the far corners of the Earth - to China, Africa, the Pacific Islands, Russia, and elsewhere.
In Deep South, he turns his gaze to a region much closer to his home. Travelling through North and South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas, he writes of the stunning landscapes he discovers - the deserts, the mountains, the Mississippi - and, above all, the lives of the people he meets.

"Still one of the best literary travellers we have." (Evening Standard)
"His ability to sum up a people or a city in a few lines is undiminished." (Daily Telegraph)
"Theroux's work remains the standard by which other travel writing must be judged." (Observer)
There are no reviews for this title yet.
"Yet another treat"
A very well narrated account of Theroux's latest work, always an absolute pleasure. Refreshing to hear "Mr. Paul" stay within the confines of America, and surprising at how it so resembles the Africa of Theroux's Dark Star Safari. I do wish somebody would commission the audio version of Patagonian Express
"Magnificent. Always a brilliant story and so descriptive"
Everything Theroux writes is so thought provoking. The research undertaking is greatly appreciated. Have listened twice so far and read the book too .
"Shaky voiced narrator with a weak story"
I love the travel books by Theroux. But I would never buy another book narrated by McDonough
A history of the Arab conquests
Not a travel book. Rather a longwinded commentary about the misery of the rural South
