The Wrong Way for a Pizza is the account of Brian Mooney's ten-week walk from the banks of the Tiber to the banks of the Blackwater - a mirror-image of A Long Way for a Pizza, the book he wrote after he walked to Rome in 2010.
Author and journalist Brian Mooney was winding down after walking 1,300 miles from Coggeshall to Rome when a friend made a teasing comment: "In the old days pilgrims didn't have the luxury of flying back. They walked home!" Two years later, Brian rose to the challenge. He packed his rucksack, laced up his walking-boots and set off to make the journey in reverse. The Wrong Way for a Pizza is the account of his ten-week walk from the banks of the Tiber to the banks of the Blackwater - a mirror-image of A Long Way for a Pizza, the book he wrote after he walked to Rome in 2010. The author keeps bumping into the ghosts of his outward journey. He gets used to being told by Rome-bound pilgrims that he is walking backwards, and, with the sun behind him lighting up the Tuscan landscape, he revels in different vistas and new horizons.
"Readers who enjoyed A Long Way for a Pizza, Brian Mooney's entertaining and sharply observed account of his 2,000 kilometre journey on foot to Rome, are in for a treat with this sequel, an equally diverting and informative travelogue of the route in reverse....an absorbing read both for armchair pilgrims and for those thinking of treading in the author's footsteps."--Richard Owen, former Rome Correspondent
