Paul Theroux ። Starred Review Having traveled overland from Cairo to Cape Town in Dark Star Safari 2003 , Theroux intended, 10 years on, to resume the trip, this time heading north up the west side of Africa, avoiding the safe and well trodden routes Though he found some happy moments in the kingdom of light, the journey was to be darker, harder, and, a rarity for Therouxunfinished He does find hopeful change in Cape Town, beautiful desolation in Namibia, and elegance in the bush in Botswana albeit at extortionate prices But when he crosses the border into Angola chaos After witnessing scene after scene of disorganization, poverty, and despair after decrying the disconnect between the countrys oil rich rulers and its unemployed, idle citizens after finding cities that were indistinguishable from one another in their squalor and decrepitude, he concludes there is nothing he can learn from their suffering Ending what seems an impossible trip, he heads for home Ultimate in the subtitle means not best but final As Theroux, in an autumnal state of mind, ponders his own mortality, it will be difficult for readers to imagine the world of letters without him His ability to

undiminished Booklist, starredTherouxs prose is as vividly descriptive and atmospheric as ever and, though a bit curmudgeonly, hes still wide open to raw, painful interactions between his psyche and his surroundings Publishers Weekly, starredIn this intensely personal book, Theroux honestly confronts racism, stigma, privilege and expectations Reading this enlightening book wont only open a window
