Praise for The Invisible Mile

“Bruising, beautiful and ultimately transcendent, there’s a perfect thought on sport, humanity or endurance on just about every page.”
—Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief

“Coventry’s tense, dark debut novel is a powerful story of grim determination and one man’s forlorn hope to conquer fear and pain.”
—Publisher’s Weekly

“The sensuous language Coventry deploys to externalize the sensations of racing in packs, as well as the self-conscious intimacies of men ‘roughhousing the love out of the late evening’ or exposing their souls in the down times like jittery troops steeling themselves before battle.”
—New York Times Book Review

“Written with poetic beauty. The Invisible Mile is an important and impressive debut.”
Sunday Star Times

“Fictionalised accounts of sporting events don’t always work, but this has the same feeling of total immersion as I remember feeling when I read David Peace’s The Damned United.”
—Ned Boulting, author of On the Road Bike

“A truly extraordinary first novel.”
—NZ Listener
