something new • Paul Theroux reviews a new biography of Henry Morton Stanley (you know Stanley & Livingston) for the New York Times. I may not get around to reading the book, but I the reviews are another matter. I mention it, because I am a sucker for travel writing, those who can’t do travel, like to read about thems that do, or something like that – anyway this is what he said in the Times: “In September of 1973 I set off from London and took the 25,000-mile trip that was to become The Great Railway Bazaar. Last year I set off from London and took exactly the same trip. But it was all different, of course. I am writing about it now.”
