The author of The Happy Isles of Oceania now offers an exhilarating account of his Mediterranean odyssey. By train, luxury cruise ship, freighter, and ferry, Theroux travels from Gibraltar on a glorious, long, lively, occasionally violent, and endlessly fascinating trip up the coast of Spain, along the Riviera, to Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, and beyond.
