內容簡介

跑者卡西迪(Quenton Cassidy)三部曲完結.一切故事的開始

傳奇暢銷作、三十多年來歷久不衰的經典《雨中的3分58秒》(Once a Runner)前傳!

繼被譽為「描寫跑步最棒的小說」的《紐約時報》暢銷作《雨中的3分58秒》後,終於推出前傳,將時空拉回1950與60年代,美國佛羅里達的黃金海岸……

身材瘦小的小男孩卡西迪,從小在被大自然包圍的小鎮成長。他光著身子、赤著腳,擁有成為傑出運動家的遠大抱負。他隨即結識地方上的怪咖Trapper Nelson,在耳濡目染下,吸收他對跑步的看法與觀念,受到莫大的啟發,殊不知Nelson似乎擁有可疑的過去……卡西迪覺得那些都只不過是無聊的八卦而沒有留心注意,直到小鎮上的法官夫婦無故失蹤而引發議論!

Nelson跟法官夫婦失蹤案,究竟有什麼關係?

進了中學的卡西迪,雖然發覺自己長程賽跑的能力,真正的夢想卻是成為藍球選手。在籃球與賽跑之間掙扎的卡西迪,對於好友的忠誠,也同時在嚴峻的情況下受到考驗……

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Once a Runner—acclaimed by Runner’s World as “the best novel ever written about running”—comes that novel’s prequel, the story of a world-class athlete coming of age in the 1950s and ’60s on Florida’s Gold Coast.

Quenton Cassidy is the skinniest boy in school, and also one of the fastest. Cassidy spends his afternoons exploring his primal surroundings: the local river, the nearby ocean, the lakes, swamps, and forests that dominate the landscape of the Florida everglades. While adventuring, Cassidy befriends Trapper Nelson, an iconoclastic hunter who lives in an isolated compound on the riverbank.

By junior high, Cassidy dreams of becoming a basketball player, but Nelson’s influence runs deep and Cassidy begins to view running as a way to interact with the natural world. Warned of Nelson’s checkered past, Cassidy dismisses the stories as hearsay, until his town is rocked by the disappearance and apparent murder of a prominent judge and his wife. Cassidy’s loyalty to his friend is severely tested just as his opportunity to make his mark as a gifted runner comes to fruition.

Hailed by National Book Award winner Bob Shacochis as a “lovely novel that reminds us that what is most valuable is life is the spirit to accomplish impossible things,” Racing the Rain explores a small town’s secrets while vividly capturing the physical endurance, determination, and mindset required of a champion. “A celebration of the purity of the sport” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram), it is an epic coming-of-age classic about the environments and friendships that shape us all.
