News at Eleven: But [Simon] Armitage's account is so observant,

so funny and so intensely likeable you leave it wishing he'd picked a longer route. The dialogue is note-perfect and the jokes alone are worth the journey. And at the end of it all, Armitage has achieved far more than his stated ambition. Walking Home tells us not just about the bones of Britain, but about the connections still to be forged between people and print, and the everlasting power of an open heart.
