A unique writing style that allows the reader to glimpse into true reflections of the writer's life experiences without the oh so common reflections of emotional damage. Totally fascinating experiences and events. I would recommend this book to anyone who can appreciate reality. Looking very forward to the author's book involving Iquitos, Peru.

this is a fascinating book, a travel to the deepest memories of a childhood that seems to have been both sad and happy! Some passages, though humorous, are absolutely heart-breaking.

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. An excellent coffee-table book. Thoroughly enjoyable, and unusually emotion-evoking. Great book.

I am basing this review on having read a few pages of An Occasional Walker, many stories in Dag's blog, all his frequent contributions to the tourist newspaper here in Iquitos, and having talked with him about life and journalism off and on the Iquitos, Peru boardwalk for three months. My sum-up is that when you put a unique person with a journalistic flair in curious situations, and if he chooses to share them, the result is a five-star read. Dag's works are all fresh and original, and put you into the story with a style all his own from forty years of around-the-world coverage. His stories are jammed with details and information like his walking tour of the concrete jungle of Iquitos. Dag, in earlier years, was a month short of his English PhD when he dropped out, to the dismay of his department head, and instead took a degree in journalism. Now his pages race like Jack Kerouac, and latch the reader like Jack London. Find out in this book.

There's something very 19th Century about Dag.

Imagine if Nietzsche lived in Barack Obama's "America". You know, the America Nancy Pelosi promised us would arise from the thousands-page legislative slop of the Affordable Healthcare Act wherein citizens would quit working and live as artists.

Imagine if Nietzsche didn't suffer debilitating headaches, bouts of social anxiety disorder, or a discordant love for Richard/Cosima Wagner.

Imagine if Nietzsche took a decade off, incessantly hit on a bong, and traversed the countryside with no direction or home.

There. Yes, THERE. You got Dagald Walker.

Dude is cool.
