Once A Runner
a novel

by John L. Parker, Jr.

Titolo dell'edizione in lingua italiana:
Corsa per la vittoria
Newton Compton editori

... running to him was real ...

...the way he did it the realest thing he knew. It was joy and woe, hard as diamond; it made him weary beyond comprehension. But it also made him free

Such was the difficult credo of Quenton Cassidy, the hero of Once Runner, the cult running classic.
After just a few paragraphs, you'll understand why this book has been acclaimed by elite runners and back-of-the-packers alike as the greatest running novel ever.
...oval that still held his long-dried sweat. Back to September, the month of promises. He put his bag down by the pole vault pit, looked uptrack to make sure no one was coming, and then walked up to the starting line. God, he thought, one more time on the line.
In lane one he stood very still, looking down at his street shoes (joggers now going around him with curious glances) and tried to conjure up the feeling. After a moment a trace of it came to him and he knew that was all there would be.
