paul squareRenowned travel writer Paul Theroux joined the John Adams Institute to talk about his book Fresh Air Fiend. It is his first collection of essays and articles devoted entirely to travel writing, Fresh Air Fiend touches down on five continents and floats through most seas in between to deliver a literary adventure of the first order, with the incomparable Paul Theroux as a guide. As Time has written, Theroux “serves as both the camera and the eye, and both the details and the illusions are developed with brilliance.”
