'Seven Days: A Pyrenean Adventure by Nathan Munday is an exhilarating read, beautifully written by an author of genuine originality. Munday’s debut announces him as a exciting and genre bridging author.' – Cynan Llwyd admires Nathan Munday's debut on Wales Arts Review
Nathan Munday’s Seven Days is a story of adventure and spirituality as father and son travel the 'Rue du Bonjour' across the pilgrim route of the high Pyrenees.
