An encounter in Eutaw:

“You’re late,” the woman said. “Why are you late?”

And then she proceeds to give Theroux such a deep-freeze, icy reception and tongue-lashing that he ends up apologizing three times, and saying things like

  • I’m grateful to you for seeing me on such short notice.
  • I was distracted by: 1. Back roads. 2. Groves of trees. 3. Golden fields. 4. Cotton bursting open.
  • I’m only fifteen minutes late.

Paul Theroux, I would advise never returning to the town of Eutaw.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

      I know, right. I think Theroux really enjoyed the encounter, lol. All travel writers should be so lucky.
