Travels with My Donkey

Tim Moore
St. Martin's Press
Travel Narrative

Moore (the marvelous comic author of French Revolutions and Frost on My Moustache) telegraphs the message (and fun) of his Spanish book with a revealing subtitle: One Man and His Ass on a Pilgrimage to Santiago. And so it is! He's as entertaining as ever (and reflective too). Moore salts his anecdotes of fellow travelers and grand adventures with an informative account of the history and culture of the medieval Way of St. James. Moore's French-speaking donkey Shinto is the perfect foil.
