The narrator of Therouxâ€™s post-apocalyptic novel, FAR NORTH, Makepeace Hatfield (who lives up to the name), is the last survivor of an immigrant Siberian community â€“ a place Makepeaceâ€™s British parents had come to to escape the material world. But the rescue of a starving waif awakens Makepeaceâ€™s longing for companionship, love and civilization, spurring the road trip that drives the novel.
