MEDIA REVIEWS
"Splendid" * Independent *
"Duncan Minshull's While Wandering: A Walking Companion, is a classic: an anthology of stories, poems and pieces by writers as diverse as Jane Austen and Colm Toibin, describing every kind of walking and the effects it has" * A Little Bird *
"The very excellence of this rich anthology makes it self-destructive. Once you start reading it, you want to throw it down and go walking" -- Derwent May * Times Literary Supplement *
