Publisher's Synopsis

"I love this story and wish it for everybody."

BILL RODGERS, American Marathon Legend



The Tall Tale of Billy Ball


In this humorously poignant coming-of-age story, a star high school cross-country runner finds himself the subject of a humiliating life. Billy, entangled in a web of bureaucratic idiocy and in trouble with the law, enters into a quirky and tumultuous relationship with his attorney, and later with a saucy pink-haired co-worker, only to discover his empty pursuits mask his real struggles and the angst of growing up.

Percolating within him, he comes to realize the one true love of his life-his childhood best friend. He uncovers his athletic potential with her support, and the haunts of an ancestor who had a similar gift. Through his great grandfather's story-one of unfinished business played out during the Great Depression-Billy is led back to race on the world's grandest stage...Boston.
