Reviews

This is an unmissable book . . . a lively story, full of clarity and amusing anecdotes - Le FigaroA real delight. Rufin is at his very best, blending together the things he saw, the people and anecdotes, juggling self-mockery and solemnity in equal measure - Le PointThe Academie Fran aise member has produced a fascinating account of his journey to Santiago de Compostela - LireWalking in Rufin's company is a joy. There is not a second of boredom to be had throughout these 900km and 270 pages, during which we witness his transformation from Academie member and ambassador to celestial tramp - L ExpressFriendly and beguiling ... a masterstroke - SpectatorA wonderful piece of writing, full of perception - of landscapes, people, self - about a journey based on solitude and physical endeavour into an interior world. There's a good dose of chatty demystification and anecdotes that make you laugh aloud. But Rufin can also write in fine lyrical mode, though he never goes on too long about anything - Literary Review
