Riding the red rooster by paul theroux
Of all the many theroux books you have for sale. I am wondering why riding the red rooster is not among them. It is available on amazon ... why is it not on Nook? Please tell me how I can get an ebook copy. Thankyou.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

One is not the Loneliest Number
Paul Theroux says normal people don't become writers. It is just not healthy to sit in a room for hours staring intently into your own mind. He counter-balances this basically inward condition by paddling thousand of miles in a kayak. In Fresh Air Fiend he explains why and how this type of therapy has become an intrinsic part of his life. This pot- pourri of his experiences and reflections, is more about Paul the human being rather than Paul the observer, than any his other books. He explains why he wrote the books he has, and why he took the trips that inspired them. He never intended to be a travel writer. Like Mark Twain, another great travel writer who needed to make a living as a writer, he did it out of necessity. The fact that he has always been an outsider-just the unhealthy prospective you need to succeed in his line of work-helped him become one of our best contemporary commentators.Was this review helpful?
