Paul Theroux is probably best known for his travel books such as To the Ends of the Earth or Riding the Iron Rooster: By Train Through China. In his latest book, "Hotel Honolulu," he examines the all-important home away from home for travelers. We've all stayed in a hotel or motel at some point during a trip. From the sterile one-room accommodations to the plush high rise suite, hotels not only impact our impression of the places we travel, but also provide a respite from them. I was enjoying one such break in the Wild Flower hotel in the lower Himilaya when I caught up with Paul Theroux.
