Perhaps one of the most revered works of fiction in the twentieth-century,The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runneris a modern classic about integrity, courage, and bucking the system. Its title story recounts the story of a reform school cross-country runner who seizes the perfect opportunity to defy the authority that governs his life. It is a pure masterpiece. From there the collection expands even further from the touching "On Saturday Afternoon" to the rollicking "The Decline and Fall and Frankie Buller." Beloved for its lean prose, unforgettable protagonists, and real-life wisdom,The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runnercaptured the voice of a generation, and its poignant and empowering life lessons will continue to captivate and entertain readers for generations to come.
