Overview

We are committed to this simple act, or we do our best to avoid it. The Vintage Book of Walking celebrates some famous walks in world literature.


Selecting from fiction and non-fiction, poetry and drama, we follow in the footsteps of some remarkable pedestrian authors; adventurers and eccentrics who have 'footed it' in all ages, through all continents. We keep up with early walkers such as Xenophon and Dante, with restless Romantics such as Thoreau and Wordsworth, with later accounts from the likes of Virginia Woolf. Patrick Leigh Fermor, Ray Bradbury and Roberto Calasso. On the road ahead, the reader will be moved, amused and surprised by over two hundred voices - each attempting to say why, how and where they have made their tracks.
