Daniel Defoe's Railway Journey
A Surreal Odyssey Through Modern Britain
Daniel Defoe’s Railway Journey describes the odyssey undertaken by two eccentric pensioners as they travel on every mile of railway track in the UK. Surreal and poignant by turns, Stuart Campbell describes the people they meet and the unwanted adventures that befall them. He is aided and abetted by the ghost of Daniel Defoe, writer, soldier, businessman and spy who completed his own journey in the 1720s.
‘'A fascinating insight into the lives of ordinary - and not-so-ordinary - travellers" "bizarre and enlightening'’
-The Sunday Post
‘Campbell intertwines reality with the unusual in an entertaining read.’
