Product description


Walking Away is very funny, very enjoyable and fuelled by Armitage's own down-to-earth poetic genius. (Guardian)

Like its predecessor, Walking Away is eminently readable and both warm and self-deprecating in its humour ... a witty, engaging and at times screamingly funny travelogue. (Huston Gilmore Sunday Express)

[Armitage's] evocations of the spare bedrooms he stays in are as telling as his descriptions of landscape ... [he] feels like your poetic best mate. (Geoff Nicholson Literary Review)

Very entertaining ... The self-deprecation with which Armitage recounts these events is a big part of the book's charm. (Mark Mason Spectator)

As before, Armitage has a brilliant eye for detail ... He is wittily self-deprecating, much like a hipper Alan Bennett ... "I won't be doing any more long walks," he insists, but this charming, if footsore troubadour is sure to find new poetic adventures. (Suzi Feay Independent on Sunday)

Fans of Armitage will enjoy slotting back into the fleecy role of walking companion ... [he is] great at spotting the habits and habitats that are peculiarly British. (Helen Davies Sunday Times)

What an excellent read Walking Away has been, an astute and intuitive look at the landscape with the quirks of the English understood, spotted and mixed in but in the best possible way, by someone who clearly sees himself as belonging...as one of them ... [Armitage] has an invaluable and very special eye. (DoveGreyReader)

Whether he's describing the characters, the land, the sea or his mood and physical condition, it's hard not to engage with a writer who wears his heart on his sleeve and who isn't afraid to puncture the overall mellow vibe with the occasional dark thought and reveal doubts about the validity of the entire enterprise. (Footless Crow)

Book Description

The sequel to Armitage's top ten bestselling travel book Walking Home.
