Description: Every decade seems to produce a novel that captures the publics imagination with a story that sweeps readers up and takes them on a thrilling, unforgettable ride. Ron McLartys The Memory of Runningis this decades novel. By all accounts, especially his own, Smithson Smithy Ide is a loser. An overweight, friendless, chain-smoking, forty-three-year-old drunk, Smithys 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. Smithy is an American original, worthy of a place on the shelf just below your Hucks, your Holdens, your Yossarians. Stephen King Endearing . . . its a ride worth taking. USA Today In The Memory of Running, professional actor and long aspiring novelist Ron McLarty has invented a character so fully and elegantly defined that the book soars with originality and life.
