<b>“Theroux’s eye for landscape remains as sharp as ever . . . It’s Theroux’s remarkable gift for getting strangers to reveal themselves that makes going along for this ride worthwhile.” — <i>New York Times Book Review</i></b><br />  <br /> Paul Theroux has spent the past fifty years roaming the globe, describing his encounters with remote people and far-flung places in ten best-selling travel books. Now, for the first time, he explores a part of America—the Deep South. Setting out on a winding road trip, Theroux discovers a region of architectural and artistic wonders, incomparable music, mouth-watering cuisine—and also some of the worst schools, medical care, housing, and unemployment rates in the nation.<br />                 Yet, no matter where he goes, Theroux meets the unsung heroes of the South, the people who, despite it all, never left, and also those who found their way home and devoted their lives to rebuilding a place they could never live without.<br />  <br /><b>“Paul Theroux’s latest travel memoir had me at hello . . . Theroux pulls no punches in his quest to understand this overlooked margin of American life.” — <i>Boston Globe</i><br />  <br /> “A vivid contemporary portrait of rural life . . . a deeply affecting personal account.” — <i>Atlanta Journal-Constitution</i></b>

<b>“Pages of pleasure for anyone who’s ever wanted to drop everything, pack up the car, grab the dog, and leave” (<i>Dogs Monthly</i>).</b><br />  <br /> Bodie, mystery mix rescue pup, is on death row in a Los Angeles dog shelter, having been abandoned by his owner. Belinda, a heartbroken woman, is in a heap on the floor of her vintage apartment, having been dumped by the man of her dreams. Two lost souls ready to find a new life—together.<br />  <br /> Belinda falls in love with Bodie the moment he plants his furry butt on her bare, flip-flopped foot. Soon, the two embark on a two-thousand-mile West Coast road trip, taking in spectacular Big Sur, a pack run in the wilds of Oregon, afternoon cocktail at Doris Day’s dog-loving hotel in Carmel, a fragrant encounter with the creator of Kennel No. 5 furfume, and a bar stop in a small town near San Francisco where a dog was elected mayor and served for thirteen years.<br />  <br /> On their soul-searching adventure, Belinda and Bodie cruise along the Pacific Coast Highway, heading toward Portland, Oregon—repeatedly voted one of the most dog-friendly cities in America. Join Belinda and Bodie on this feel-good road trip, and you, too, can feel the wind in your hair and a wag in your tail . . .
