Abstract:

From the bestselling author comes a touching, insightful, and humorous memoir of an unlikely racewalker and world traveler. Before Lawrence Block was the author of bestselling novels, he was a walker. As a child, he walked home from school. As a college student, he walked until he was able to buy his first car. As an adult, he ran marathons until he discovered what would become a lifelong obsession--never mind if some people didn't think it was a real sport--racewalking. Racewalking ended up taking him all over the country. Through the lens of his adventures while walking--in twenty-four-hour races, on a pilgrimage through Spain, and just about everywhere you can imagine--Block shares his heartwarming personal story about life's trials and tribulations, discomforts and successes, which truly lets readers walk a mile in the master of mystery's shoes.--From publisher description.
