Buoyant on the Blackstuff: (Me, Marathons, Maggie and Merseyside) (1982-1992) By Tony Peacock
Paperback: $16.74
Ships in 3-5 business days
‘An involvement in running marathons is unhealthy; physically, mentally, socially and too many other alleys to go into.” Set mainly in and around Merseyside between 1982 and 1992, this is... More > the story of one man’s journey from disillusioned footballer to deluded runner. In turbulent and often tragic times locally, nationally and globally, this book takes a serious look at contemporary events while simultaneously providing a light-hearted view of an obsession with putting one foot in front of the other, as quickly as possible, without falling over. The Beatles , Nelson Mandela, Michael Jackson, Maggie Thatcher, to name but a few, join us on a whistle-stop magical cultural tour of the 80s, sometimes reaching speeds of ten miles an hour. In many ways this is also a love story; a love of people, places and plodding along on the Blackstuff.< Less
