13 Walking Away: Further Travels with a Troubadour on the South West Coast Path [SIGNED First Edition]
Armitage, Simon Faber & Faber London 2015 0571298354 / 9780571298358 First Edition Hardcover New New Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall Signed by Author(s)
New hardback, in excellent FINE condition. First printing. SIGNED by the author on the title page (flat signed, no inscription or other marks). Not content with walking the Pennine Way as a modern day troubadour, an experience recounted in his bestseller and prize-wining Walking Home, the restless poet has followed up that journey with a walk of the same distance but through the very opposite terrain and direction far from home. In Walking Away Simon Armitage swaps the moorland uplands of the north for the coastal fringes of Britain's south west, once again giving readings every night, but this time through Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, taking poetry into distant communities and tourist hot-spots, busking his way from start to finish. From the surreal pleasure dome of Minehead Butlins to a smoke-filled roundhouse on the Penwith Peninsula then out to the Isles of Scilly and beyond, Armitage tackles this personal Odyssey with all the poetic reflection and personal wit we've come to expect of one of Britain's best loved and most popular writers. 276pp. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 305020
