Summary

The Old Patagonian Express tells of Paul Theroux’s train journey down the length of North and South America. Beginning on Boston’s subway, he depicts a voyage from ice-bound Massachusetts to the arid plateau of Argentina’s most southerly tip.

Shivering and sweating by turns as the temperature and altitude rise and plummet, he describes the people he encountered – the tedious Mr. Thornberry in Limón and reading to the legendary blind writer, Jorge Luis Borges, in Buenos Aires.

A W. F. Howes audio production.
