🔴 Condition - Good 🔴

A classic fictionalised biography of the enigmatic Olympic athlete Jack Lovelock. Jack Lovelock has been called the first modern athlete. He became famous internationally when he broke the world record to take the gold medal in the 1500 metres event at the Berlin Olympic Games in 1936.
A Rhodes Scholar and Oxford medical student, a perfectionist (neurotic at the least), confused about his sexual identity and, finally, awakened to politics. Lovelock retired from running almost immediately after winning the 1500-meter race against the greatest milers of his time. The remaining events of his lifeWorld War II on the home front; his long, successful wooing by an American heiress; the physical suffering caused by a riding accident (and exacerbated by his own emotional problems); his last years in America; and his mysterious death, at 39, under a New York subway trainhave none of the glamour of his golden years.
But, in this novel, Lovelock becomes real, an unhappy and haunted man.
