The Long Run of Myles Mayberry

The Long Run of Myles Mayberry

(1999)
A novel by

 
Fiction. Combine the poetic hymns to running of Alan Sillitoe, the tales of obsessive behavior of Oliver Sacks, and a healthy dose of the anarchy and absurdity of Cambridge in the '70's, and you get THE LONG RUN OF MYLES MAYBERRY. Myles is a genial loser, moving from one failed job to another. The only thing he has going for him is his dream of winning the Boston Marathon, which not even a stint in a psychiatric hospital can remedy. THE LONG RUN is a delightful, campy spoof of bad behavior, and a thoughtful elegy to the joys of running.
