Roger Robinson

Running Writing Robinson

Original work by leading running journalists, literary scholars, creative writers and runners celebrates Roger Robinson's varied career. 


This fascinating and varied book celebrates Roger Robinson's equally varied career as writer, scholar, teacher, journalist, runner, announcer, and friend (etc). Some of the 52 contributions are memoirs of Roger in his many different aspects, but others are outstanding original work in literary scholarship, running journalism, sports history, theatre and opera history, biography, poetry, personal memoir, and much else. It is an important source book in several fields, as well as a richly entertaining (and eccentric) feast of great writing.
