The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner

by Alan Sillitoe, 176 pages

Finished on 16th of December, 2018, buy here.


Bought it because of the title. Has barely anything to do with running. It’s a bunch of short stories about hardship in pre- and post-war Britain. It’s very well written and the author managed to keep my attention although the genre usually isn’t interesting to me. Still, I wouldn’t put it on a recommendations list.
