Continuing the travel writing theme am finishing Paul Theroux ‘On the express train to Patagonia’ and it’s also fantastic. has a dedication to Louis at the start which strangely personalises it as we all know Louis from his excellent documentary series. The book describes a train journey from Boston to Patagonia, taking each state in, continuing through Mexico and on through Central America. He takes an an objective but personable view of all he encounters but feels under no obligation to gild the Lily so you feel like you are getting something authentic.
