Seven Days is a story of adventure and spirituality as father and son travel the "Rue du Bonjour" across the pilgrim route of the high Pyrenees.It is a journey with a writer grappling with some of the questions of modern life, his love for the mountains, his beliefs and aspirations and examples set both by his father and the enigmatic fellow traveller they meet in a remote auberge who comes to symbolise and shadow their sojourn, a man he nicknames Hemingway, although he is neither a writer nor an American.A wonderfully engaging work of travel, discovery, and contemplation by an exciting new voice.
Nathan Munday originally comes from a small village in Carmarthenshire but he now lives near the Gabalfa Interchange where he has surrounded himself with lots of books. Doing a Ph.D. means that he has to escape to the mountains at least once, or maybe twice, a year. He won the M. Wynn Thomas New Scholars Prize (2016) and came second in the New Welsh Writing Awards (2016). This is his first book.
