As internationally acclaimed author Paul Theroux writes in his introduction, 'Here is a collection of travel poetry composed by real travellers, weekending tourists, feverish fantasists, bluffers, dreamers, brave adventurers and resolute stay-at-homes. It succeeds in what poetry does best - inspires and consoles, reminds us of who we are, where we've been, and where we might want to go next.'

Paul Theroux has written many works of fiction and travel writing, including the modern classics The Great Railway Bazaar, The Old Patagonian Express, My Secret History and The Mosquito Coast. He divides his time between Cape Cod and the Hawaiian islands.
