Inhaltsangabe: In this modern version of the Grand Tour, Paul Theroux sets off from Gibralter, one of the Pillars of Hercules, his destination the southern pillar. Instead of crossing the straits, he chose to travel the long way, up the coast of Spain along the Riviera, and by ferry to Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily and beyond - way beyond, avoiding the cross-fire of Croatia, through the near anarchy of Albania and on to a ship through the Levant with 100 Turks. It is a long and lively trip, some of it in search of Waugh's labels, Fitzgerald's "Tender is the Night" and the landmarks of "The Odyssey".
Rezension: Paul Theroux has developed one of travel writing's most identifiable styles: always the foreigner, always a bit apart, slightly irascible, but perfectly observant. At last he has ventured to one of the most traveled places on earth, and returned with his most exhilarating, revealing, and eloquent travel book. In this modern version of the Grand Tour, Theroux sets off from Gibraltar, one of the fabled Pillars of Hercules, on a glorious journey around the shores of the Mediterranean.
