The Last Train to Zona Verde by Paul Theroux – review

The Last Train to Zona Verde: Overland from Cape Town to Angola by Paul Theroux

When a former peace corps idealist returns to his Malawi village, he discovers that well-intended international aid didn’t pan out for the villagers he loved. Paul Theroux sets his new novel in his old stomping grounds of the snake-infested region of Malawi and wrestles with the ethics of philanthropy (so we don’t have to).

Fiction: Idealizing the four years he spent in Malawi with the Peace Corps, Ellis Hock is abruptly divorced by his wife and decides to return to Africa only to find the region devastatingly transformed by poverty and apathy.

Het eerste en misschien ook het beste boek van Paul Theroux: 'The Great Railway Bazaar'. Ofte: met de trein door Europa en Azië...

The Old Patagonian Express by Paul Theroux The author travelled through South America around the same time as I was backpacking a similar route, so it was good to re-visit this book over 30 years on. It confirms my opinion of Paul Theroux' travel books: he's a lively, witty and authentic observer whilst being a cantankerous and egocentric companion!
