Information
First edition third print hardback of WALKING AWAY (Further Travels with a Troubadour on the South West Coast Path) by Simon Armitage and published by Faber & Faber in 2015. Signed by Armitage on the title page. Numberline reads 4 6 8 10 9 7 5 3

The book is in near fine condition (blue cloth boards with silver lettering to spine) with no significant wear to speak of. The book is in a near fine unclipped dust jacket which also has no wear worth mentioning. Internally the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

Not content with walking the Pennine Way as a modern day troubadour, an experience recounted in his bestseller 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 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.
