The Vanishing Point
by Paul Theroux (2017)
from The New Yorker website, August 7, 2017
The current New Yorker magazine is one of the handful of two-week issues they release during the year, meaning that this would normally be an off-week. However, this week it’s more “on” than it has been in years. Instead of letting us all take a week off, they have published an online-only novella by one of my favorites: Paul Theroux.
So don’t rest! Usually when I print these out they run between 10-15 pages, but this sits at a healthy 39, so there’s work to be done, and I hope it all pays off!
You can find the story here.
Please comment below. I’d love your thoughts on The Vanishing Point and Theroux in general.
