This is an unmissable book ... a lively story, full of clarity and amusing anecdotes -- Etienne de Montety Le Figaro A 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 -- Marie-Francoise Leclere Le Point The Academie Francaise member has produced a fascinating account of his journey to Santiago de Compostela -- Tristan Savin Lire Walking 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 -- Marianne Payot L'Express
