“A stirringly evocative, riveting, hilarious, nostalgic, important book about two opposing worlds that aren’t so different after all.” Damian Hall, author and elite ultra-runner
Faster! Louder! is the fascinating story of how an unlikely and eccentric runner became, against all expectations, the British Champion. It’s a tale that focusses on the races that made up Gary Devine’s victorious 1990 season, while opening out to understand how the unruly, fearless ethos at the heart of punk could chime perfectly with the spirited, gutsy and dauntless root of mountain running; how the elements of surprise and daring are central to both. It’s a near-perfect underdog narrative, a drama that traces one boy’s life from ordinary schoolkid to extraordinary winner – all against a backdrop of alcohol, fights, arrests and extreme guitar noise.
Faster! Louder! is published by Great Northern Books.
