Walking With Walser

June 22, 2015|
Walking With Walser by Daphne Gordon


Ursula, an eccentric, middle-aged writer, likes to walk almost as much as she likes to write. One day in the spring of 2013, Ursula puts her hat on her head and sets out along her favourite thoroughfare—Queen Street West in Toronto.
Walking, thinking, talking, and watching, Ursula opens to her neighbourhood. She visits a bookstore, goes to the bank, has lunch with a friend, attends a dress fitting, posts a scathing letter to her city's disgraced mayor, considers having her hair cut, and fleetingly falls in love. She chants om. She picks flowers.
Walking is Ursula's way of greeting Mother Nature. This is her way of honouring her favourite writer of all time, the flâneur Robert Walser. This is bliss.
But every sunny day must come to an end, and every walk must turn homeward again. As a soft rain begins to fall, Ursula is overcome with grief, loss, and regret.
Will she find relief from her pain? Will she run for mayor? Will she learn to skate? Most importantly, will Ursula finally learn to believe in love?
