You'll want to see St Jean Pied de Port, Bayonne and Ostabat (in France), Manjarin, Acebo, the Rioja, Santiago de Compostela and St Domingo de la Calzada (in Spain) after reading Pilgrimage Four. Each are seen as characters with extensive histories, each with colourful stories. Written with a vibrant pen, full of life, passion, and an astute and comic eye. Two other stories recall the traveller and pilgrimage experience. Included are lively descriptions of the exhausted and half-crazed tour guide.
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!
Includes fifteen photographs, maps, and web links.
