Staff Review:

This strange and haunting novel tells the story of a man with an uncontrollable compulsion to walk. He leaves his wife, family, job - sometimes in the middle of a sentence - and walks until he passes out and wakes up and starts walking again. For periods he's able to control the strange impulse, but eventually it takes over his life. This story sounds sad, and it is, but it's beautifully written and you won't soon forget it.
