Product Details

Praise

“Smithy is an American original, worthy of a place on the shelf just below your Hucks, your Holdens, your Yossarians.” —Stephen King

 

“Endearing . . . it’s 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.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Captivating . . . McLarty unspools passage after passage of devastating grace and melancholy, and his taciturn hero hooks himself to your heart.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Riders who hop onto the back of Smithy Ide’s bike and ride America with him will cherish the journey. I loved this sad, funny, life-affirming novel.” —Wally Lamb
