Brian Fawcett explores the connection between track and existentialism, pool and foolscap, tomato cans and the Knights of the Round Table. In the process, he becomes a horse, confronts the Red Menace, and almost drowns himself. This book is for anyone who knows what it’s like to learn—literally and figuratively—the rules of the game.
