Map endpapers. 8vo, black cloth spine, brown paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "Vowing to arrive in China without jet lag, Paul Theroux joined a tour that made its way by rail from London to Mongolia, stopping at Paris and Waraw and in the Soviet Union. Reaching China by this unconventional overland route proved nothing short of hilarious and never less than eye-opening about who goes to China and why. Then, through Inner Mongolia to Peking andShanghai, Mr Theroux and his fellow travelers rode trains and discovered t hat in some ways China is changing, and in others is still as ancient as its ruins and just as bound by tradition. [...] In 'Riding the Iron Rooster',his practiced eye, adventurous spirit, and rich prose produce a vital memo ir, full of people and talk -- warm, outspoken conversations about the private life of China today, the Cultural Revolution, and Mao; about writing novels, growing fruit, and the thousand details of everyday life; about discontent, patriotism, and the possibility of a better life in America." - fromthe dj.
