Episode 40 - The Camino in Novel and Poem: We are living in a boom time for Camino-related books, with new publications hitting the virtual shelves seemingly every week. And yet, these are overwhelming memoir or historical-cultural in approach; to this point, relatively few works have explored the pilgrimage through the lens of fiction or poetry. Gradually, though, we are starting to see authors dip into those realms, and this episode features two such writers. Up first is Ashlee Cowles, the American author of the YA-novel Beneath Wandering Stars, which centers on two young pilgrims on the Camino. She is followed by David McLoghlin, an Irish poet whose collection of poems on life in 1993 Santiago de Compostela, Santiago Sketches, is featured throughout the episode.
