An anthology of literary walks—from Austen, Woolf, and Bronte to Colm Toibin, Bruce Chatwin, and Werner Herzog
This is the ultimate companion for readers and walkers looking to take inspiration from poems, novels, plays, and journals. Walking is a fundamental act, often taken for granted, yet through the centuries it has inspired a fascinating literature. This, the first comprehensive anthology on the subject, delves into why we walk and how we walk, the differences between the country hike and the city stroll, walking and wooing, walking into trouble and marching out. A mix of fiction and non-fiction, poetry, and drama provides the reader with more than 200 booted authors. Xenophone and Baudelaire, Flora Thompson and Julian Barnes, Mark Twain and Roberto Calasso tramp the pages of this fascinating collection. Previously published with the title The Vintage Book of Walking.
