SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER Beloved travel writer Paul Theroux turns his attention to America exploring the landscapes and communitiesf his homeland as an Fol outsider for the first time For the past fifty years Paul Theroux has travelled to the far cornersf the earth to China India Africa the Pacific Islands South America Russia and elsewhere and brought them to life in his cool exactin. Ke The True Tale of Castaway Daniel Foss off and flow like the first visit to a gun fair but then he visitsthers which smells a bit like padding it Myths and Legends of Russia out Manyf the verbatim ¿Quién yo? one assumes conversations are not particularly rivetingr informative better if they were excluded Not knowing the area at all I tried to find some the they were excluded Not the area at all I tried to find some SJWs Never Lie: Censorship is Tolerance! Freedom is Slavery! Ignorance is Strength! of then Google Earth but maybe I missed the derelict houses he describes for it looked not too bad to me though trailer homes predominated And Il terrore viene per posta of course Google Earth excludes people In his initial reviewf authors he fails to mention Bill Bryson s early work The Lost Continent The Adventures of the Black Hand Gang of a tour into small town America which I found both informative and readable He has a strong dig against Clinton which I found a bit disturbing and maybe unnecessary While he makes a great playf re visiting towns and people he has met before I don t see he adds much to the tale In reviewing Deep South your perspective depends n where you are from and where you reside I am a black southerner and found the book deeply ffensive Although he puts denigrating comments in uotes it is hard to imagine any southerner saying some words to a total stranger especially an Bellezza crudele outsider Consider for example that racial slurs are attributed to the speaker being interviewed Most white southerners in today s world would not say these words aloud Perhaps in the 1960 s but certainly not now Also Theroux paints a dismal portraitf rural southern blacks giving them little hope He basically ignores the large and growing black middle class in the south who are well educated with nuclear families He astondingly states that blacks in Africa have a brighter future than rural southern blacks What Theroux needs to do is simply look at the GDP Encanto: New Poems of rural blacks and compare it to the GDPf the countries The Return of the Dancing Master of their ancestors Doing would reveal that Theroux is simply wrong I felt contrary to some reviewers that he was constantly looking down his nose at the south and at southerners But again such a book is viewed differently dependingn the reader and in particular where the roots The Mother of All Meltdowns of the reader reside This is a very recent look at life in the southern States and how things have changedr not since segregation was supposedly ended Given that it s so recent it s a shock to read that extreme poverty still exists in the wealthy US that exceeds even that in Africa where Theroux has travelled extensively and Theroux himself is shocked by this discovery while segregation still exists either The Cybernetic Brain: Sketches of Another Future overtlyr covertly In fact it was reading his Dark Star Safari that drew me to sampling Dark Wind of his work and I found that I preferred the bookn Africa as it was Doctor Who: The War Doctor: Infernal Devices of a journey down the lengthf the continent with a beginning middle and end whereas Deep South is based Banana: A Global History on a numberf visits returning to the same places and people during the different seasons That s not to say that it wasn t interesting and enlightening just a different sort De twijfel van Salaì of journey Having read and enjoyed severalf Paul s travel books this Brendan Behan's New York one was frankly disappointing I think he setff withsome sort Happenstance 2 of agenda And his attackn some Porter of the great Southern writers was unjustified had no feel for the book at allGave up before the end something I hardly ever do.
