New travel writing at its best, Pilgrimage relives the pilgrim's journey with affection and bite, lovingly descriptions of pilgrim towns and villages, written with a vibrant and passionate pen.
Commentators say Pilgrimage is “beautiful poetic writing", with “inspired metaphor, written “to a breathless walking rhythm”.
The judge of the Peter Cowan Short Story Prize said of one Pilgrimage story: it’s 'An epic evocation of place. Yes, this story proves that you can produce an epic in a mere 488 words! Like all good fiction, perhaps, this piece is ultimately an investigation into how time passes and works. Energetic, almost punch-drunk writing (I mean that as a complement!): "Let the dogs and big ideas fight over the bones behind the Calle mayor". Fabulous!
Towns of interest include Conques, Santiago de Compostella, Astorga, Arzua, Pont St Espirit, Decazeville, St Jean-Pied-de-Port, Najera, Figaec, Decazeville, Le Puy and Belorado.
