Walking Away

by Simon Armitage - £8.99  Faber & Faber (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571298365 | ISBN 10: 0571298362

Not content with walking the Pennine Way as a modern day troubadour, an experience recounted in his bestselling and prize-winning 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 pleasuredome 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.
