Paul Theroux takes us on a riveting journey into the heart of the South, America's other country. For the past fifty years, Paul Theroux has travelled to the far corners of the earth -- to China, India, Africa, the Pacific Islands, South America, Russia, and elsewhere -- and brought them to life in his cool, exacting prose. 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.
