A rich feast of travel writing, literary essays and fascinating interviews from Sunday Times bestselling travel author Paul Theroux

'Wonderful... Evidence of both the breadth of Theroux's interests and his skill in bringing them to life'
Sunday Times Culture

Drawing together a fascinating body of writing from over 14 years of work, Figures in a Landscape ranges from profiles of cultural icons (Oliver Sacks, Elizabeth Taylor, Robin Williams) to intimate personal remembrances; from thrilling adventures in Africa to literary writings from Theroux's rich and expansive personal reading. Collectively these pieces offer a fascinating portrait of the author himself, his extraordinary life, restless and ever-curious mind.
