9781854187901: A Long Way for a Pizza

Author and journalist Brian Mooney returns to Italy, the country where some 30 years earlier he reported on the deaths and elections of two Popes, and the kidnap and murder of its former Prime Minister, Aldo Moro. He travels on foot, setting out from his home in Essex, and going via London so that he can walk from St Paul’s Cathedral to St Peter’s Basilica. His journey is for enjoyment, but is also a quest to find out what kind of a pilgrim he is; Hilaire Belloc’s classic, The Path to Rome, helps him come up with some surprising answers. Belloc’s and Mooney’s journeys could not be more different. Belloc, pilgrim staff in hand, set out in the early 20th century to celebrate Christianity; Mooney, with Visa card, BlackBerry and St Luke’s Gospel in his rucksack, journeys through a much changed secular Europe.

A Long Way for a Pizza is a picaresque and at times provocative narrative of a 1,300 mile walk through France, across the Jura and Alps and down Italy, and a cheerful account of the people Mooney meets and places he visits.

About the Author:

Brian Mooney is a prize-winning international journalist and author of three books. He worked for Reuters for 30 years, covering events in more than 50 countries. He was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and awarded an American Press Club Award for his work in Poland during the Solidarity Revolution. In recent years he has worked in high-profile international PR assignments in Russia, Bangladesh and India. He has published: Breaking News (Wiley), a business book about the near-collapse of Reuters; Frontier Country (Thorogood), a light-hearted account of a walk around the borders of Essex; A Long Way for a Pizza and Shaping History (Arcturus), a study of great leaders.

Review:

“The author excels in not saying too much.... his spiritual outlook is present only implicitly. There is plenty of humour to go with the unstated physical fortitude of getting up each dawn for two and a half months and finishing each day's allotted miles.”
(Christopher Howse, The Daily Telegraph)
