A very readable, extremely erudite -account of runners in literature, from the Bible to Greece and Rome to nineteenth century English literature, to the modern novel. A treasure trove of literary gems on the sport, this book includes hundreds of items too brief for inclusion in The Runner’s Literary Companion.

Roger Robinson is a professor of -English at Victoria University in New Zealand and is a world-class runner. He is the editor of The Oxford Companion to New Zealand Literature.
