long slow distance

April 9, 2009

A poetic and at times mysterious novel, Long Slow Distance begins as a portrait of a person, a runner, who appears to have difficulty in occupying the world around him. His identity is ambiguous, his manner, calm. He is thin. As he moves (thinks, runs, works, shares), his own corporeity is increasingly called into question. He seems to disappear, he moves on. What follows is a series of snapshots—of events, lives, environments, bodies in motion—that proceeds from one city to another, and in which one might encounter a semblance, the runner’s faint yet indelible footprints. Always moving, forever becoming, disappearing.
