The Running-Shaped Hole


Add your own review!

Overview

A self-deprecating meditation on how running changed one man's life. In November of 2012, Robert Earl Stewart left a cardiologist's office terrified of dying. He was 38 years old and weighed 368 pounds. Not so much an instructional manual on how to run, but a humorous meditation on what not to do, The Running-Shaped Hole examines how running affected Stewart as a husband, father, recovered alcoholic, journalist, bookseller, and writer, following him through various adventures, injuries, and spiritual epiphanies had while running.

Praise for Robert Earl Stewart With Wildean wit, Falstaffian amusements, and Hefnerian lust, these poems crackle with explosive language and arresting imagery. Something Burned Along the Southern Border heralds the arrival of a poet with gifts to delight and amaze. --Paul Vermeersch, author of The Fat Kid and Between the Walls Psalm-like and surreal, diverse and surprising, Something Burned Along the Southern Border maps a seldom-recorded region of Canada, the joint of Windsor-Detroit, and beyond. Like a scent, this poetry tugs, pulls open our memories. It smells like pancake houses, maple, diesel, tobacco, blood, and forest brush. --Emily Schultz, author of Joyland and Men Walking on Water Robert Earl Stewart's Campfire Radio Rhapsody misses nothing. Cunning and bold, this collection exists in the tender dark space between tooth and claw. An exceptionally adroit storyteller, Stewart calmly walks us into the eye of the impending storm with uncommon grace. He writes the way the rest of us wish we lived: fearless and searching. --Dani Couture, author of Good Meat and Sweet
