American-born Paul Theroux had lived in England for 11 years when he realized he'd explored dozens of exotic locations without discovering anything about his adopted home. So, with a knapsack on his back, he set out to explore by walking and by short train trips.

    " I made it a little past Brighton before I put the book down. I found it dreary reading -- though more than once I did think that 1982 Britain might have been an awfully dreary place to be. So maybe it's not Theroux's fault. "
