Synopsis

First published in 1935 and virtually unavailable for years, this extraordinary novel tells the story of a young American--the unnamed narrator--who hitchhikes his way across Asia, from Beirut to China, living off the land and depending on the hospitality of the people he meets along the road. As Pico Iyer writes in the introduction, [Prokosch] catches the peculiar logic that makes travel a land of alternative reality, a foreign state in itself that is an intoxication.
