THE MEMORY OF RUNNING

Author(s): MCLARTY RON

General

Every decade seems to produce a novel that captures the public s imagination with a story that sweeps readers up and takes them on a thrilling, unforgettable ride. Ron McLarty s The Memory of Running is this decade s novel. By all accounts, especially his own, Smithson "Smithy" Ide is a loser. An overweight, friendless, chain-smoking, forty-three-year-old drunk, Smithy s life becomes completely unhinged when he loses his parents and long-lost sister within the span of one week. Rolling down the driveway of his parents house in Rhode Island on his old Raleigh bicycle to escape his grief, the emotionally bereft Smithy embarks on an epic, hilarious, luminous, and extraordinary journey of discovery and redemption."
