What about other walker/writers?, 14 Nov 2012
Coverly provides a good overview of walking writers from a British perspective. But he missed several writers who use walking as an integral part of a writing. His bibliography does not list Alfred Kazin (A Walker in the City), Phillip Lopate (Waterfront), Colson Whitehead (The Colossus of New York), Orhan Pamuk (Istambul), Chet Raymo (The Path), Robert Lennon (Pieces for the Left Hand), and Craig Childs (House of Rain). I wonder how his analysis would be changed by including these walking writers.
