Description:
<p>In this, the first volume of <i>Difficulty at the Beginning</i>, John Dupre is a student at Raysburg Military Academy, where his best friend Lyle Ledzinski is training him to be a perfect Socratic athlete: “A sound mind in a sound body.”Together they want to experience all of life — athletics, philosophy, beer, the quest for Truth, and most of all, those mysterious creatures that seem to come from another planet: girls. By their junior year they've taken to hitch-hiking around, fired up on Kerouac, James Dean and St. Augustine, and their horizons begin to expand like an endless sunrise. They're out for <i>experience and suffering</i>, and that's just what they're going to get. Written as though on the back of the pages of <i>Gloria</i> (shortlisted for the Governor General's Award, 1999), <i>Running</i> depicts the lives of young men in late-1950s America with humour, pathos, and muscle. Taken on its own or as the prelude to Difficulty at the Beginning, it's a memorable and invigorating piece of writing that shows how the smug, grey culture of the 1950s was shattered forever with three little words.</p>
