Solitary nomad …

… Figures in a Landscape by Paul Theroux review – a writer driven by divided loyalties | Books | The Guardian.

Strikingly, Theroux rarely refers to interviews or hangs out with contemporary American writers. The literary fellows with whom he’s most at home are expats and oddballs: Henry Thoreau, William Burroughs, Hunter S Thompson and Paul Bowles. In this collection, they keep company with some notable weirdos: Liz Taylor, the goose-farmer EB White, a Manhattan dominatrix and Robin Williams.
