But do not conclude that this book is all about politics! Rather, "An Occasional Walker" resonates with humor, satire, and personal anecdotes, which are poignant at times. The author is clearly a wordsmith who knows how to use the English language efficaciously so as to engage the reader.
The episodic nature of this book and the reader-friendly length of the chapters allow the reader to enjoy Mr. Walker's writing in snippets - in the order presented or according to one's own preference. I recently took "An Occasional Walker" with me when I went on vacation and found myself returned to the book again and again as time allowed.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to more books written by D.W. Walker.
The author has some well rendered and incredibly interesting stories of his various travels around the world. Though my favorite story describes a (likely embellished) childhood memory of giving his grandfather a viking burial at sea, which i found startlingly strange and evocative.
Much of the political commentary revolve around war, as the author often mentions. The perspective of Walker's views are non mainstream, perhaps I could put tongue in cheek and call him a Radical-Non-Radical. Whether you agree with it or not, its sure to be thought/ discussion provoking.
Many entries are also reference heavy, meaning that by reading this one book, you may be led to many other interesting works. Even if sometimes they're connection to this text feels a little indirect.

A collection of short stories/experiences, written in an interesting semi-beat style. Very easy reading. Pick it up, put it down, and pick it up again. Read morePublished on December 4, 2013 by Ivonne Muehlbach
There's something very 19th Century about Dag.

Dag's book reads like a series of conversations with a well-traveled uncle who likes to tell a tale. An Occasional Walker is well worth reading.Published on May 10, 2013 by WM
