Product description


"Taylor is a humor writer...and he puts his talent to prodigious use in documenting his odyssey-by-foot...Beginning with his first visit to the gym - not to run, but to use the shower when the hot water goes out in his building - I laughed out loud at sketches made funnier by the resonance of recognition...."

About the Author

Russell Taylor is the copy-writing arm of the partnership that produces the "Alex" cartoon strip in The Daily Telegraph, and is published annually by Prion. He likes his sport but until this challenge not quite enough to get him out of the pub and into a gym. He lives in Muswell Hill, north London. He was awarded an MBE in 2003 for services to journalism.
