Reviews

"Smithy is an American original, worthy of a place on the shelf just below your Hucks, your Holdens, your Yossarians." --Stephen King

"Endearing . . . it's a ride worth taking." --USA Today

"In The Memory of Running, professional actor and long aspiring novelist Ron McLarty has invented a character so fully and elegantly defined that the book soars with originality and life." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Captivating . . . McLarty unspools passage after passage of devastating grace and melancholy, and his taciturn hero hooks himself to your heart." --Entertainment Weekly

"Riders who hop onto the back of Smithy Ide's bike and ride America with him will cherish the journey. I loved this sad, funny, life-affirming novel." --Wally Lamb
